ACT ‘Shoes-n-Brews Winter Walk and Beal House Social
SUGAR HILL – Do you like to snowshoe? How ‘bout drinking beer? If you answered yes to either of those questions please join us for Ammonoosuc Conservation Trust’s first ‘Shoes & Brews event – wine drinkers welcome, too!
On Saturday, Jan. 13 the group will meet for a snowshoe (or X-C ski if that suits your fancy and conditions allow) at ACT’s Bronson Hill Conservation Area in Sugar Hill at 2:30 p.m. After the walk we’ll head to the Beal House in Littleton for brews and snacks from 4:30 – 6 p.m.
The snowshoe hike is planned for about an hour and a half and will be hosted by ACT Trustee Ned Brewer and Executive Director Rebecca Brown. We’ll be moving at a slow to moderate pace along old woods roads and to the beautiful open fields on Bronson Hill. This magnificent land is currently being conserved with ACT by its generous landowner and through the support of ACT members.
We’ll stop to warm up in the historic cabin and enjoy sweeping views of Franconia Ridge and beyond. Kids are encouraged to come along and dogs are always welcome!
After the walk the group will reconvene at approximately 4:30 p.m. at The Beal House in Littleton for refreshments and a warm up. Come have a beverage and catch up with old friends and get to know more folks in your community. All are welcome (bring a friend!) and are free to come and go as needed. The event will officially run from 4:30 p.m. to about 6 p.m. but you’re invited to stay and enjoy the delicious and locally sourced fare at the Beal House.
Registration for the snowshoe hike is required – for the safety and enjoyment of participants the group will be limited to 20 participants so please be sure to pre-register ASAP. Registration closes at noon on Friday, January 12th. Once registered, you will receive an e-mail with details on the meeting location.
Registration for the Beal House is appreciated so organizers can plan accordingly. Not able to make it to both portions? You can join either or both. If you’re only coming to the Beal House, please bring a friend(s)!
This program is free and open to the public, with a suggested $5 donation to support ACT’s land conservation efforts. Advanced registration is required. Details and registration information are available at www.aconservationtrust.org/education-events or by calling (603) 823-7777.
