Spring Ephemerals at Hubbard Brook

May 21 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Staff from the Hubbard Brook Research Foundation will offer a tour on May 21, which will touch upon their long-term data collection, acid rain, watersheds, and forest ecosystem science. The visit is typically 2–3 hours and involves a 1.3 mile walking tour through part of the 7,800 acre experimental forest. Tour stops include atmospheric monitoring sites, experimental watersheds and weirs, and the Archive building.

Visitors must dress appropriately for walking in the woods the day of the visit. Sturdy walking/hiking shoes and trekking poles are highly recommended, and rain gear and warm hats may be needed if the weather is variable. There are no food services available at the Experimental Forest. We request that trash and food are picked up by visitors before they depart, abiding by all “Leave No Trace” principles. Bathroom facilities and water fountains are available on site at the Headquarters building. Vehicles taking visitors into the Experimental Forest will drive on a single lane well maintained dirt road for approximately 1.5 miles to the trailhead where the tours begin. Groups will meet at the Headquarters building before heading up into the forest. The headquarters building can be found at 234 Mirror Lake Road. North Woodstock, NH 03262.
