The series includes a special program on July 10, “Weather in the White Mountains: A Tour of Extremes,” presented by the Mount Washington Observatory. The Dolly Copp Campground series will be at the historic Civilian Conservation Corps visitor center inside the campground at 7 p.m. All programs are approximately one hour in length and include time for conversation about the evening’s topic or any other National Forest issue.
“Sled Dogs of the White Mountains,” “Mineral Collecting” and “Introduction to the Night Sky” are just a few of the upcoming family-friendly topics. There will also be opportunities to learn about current issues impacting the forest, such as white nose bat syndrome, Eastern coyotes and emerald ash borer.
