Join the Society for the Protection of New Hampshire Forests for its Creek Farm Fall Series at the Forest Society Education Center at Creek Farm. The fall series will offer educational and exploration opportunities at Creek Farm, a unique property in Portsmouth where the forests meet the tides.
“We are very excited to continue our programming for local residents at Creek Farm,” states Sarah Kern, Creek Farm education program coordinator for the Society for the Protection of New Hampshire Forests. “The Creek Farm Fall Series is designed to engage residents with the grounds at Creek Farm, Sagamore Creek, and the surrounding land and forest. We really have developed a wonderful community of outdoor enthusiasts through our educational series, by connecting with local experts and getting outside to enjoy this unique coastal property together.”
