ACT’s 2018 ‘Shoes & Brews Series Wraps Up in Bethlehem
BETHLEHEM – The Ammonoosuc Conservation Trust (ACT) closes out the 2018 ‘Shoes & Brews series at two new locations!
Come out on Saturday, October 27th from 2 – 5:30 p.m. for a walk in Bethlehem at a newly conserved private property open for just this event. The group will meet at 2 p.m. sharp for a walk through the fields and woods on this lovely property, kids are encouraged to come along and dogs are also welcome! After the walk we’ll head to the Wayside Inn for brews and snacks from 4 – 5:30 p.m.
The walk is planned for about an hour and a half and will be hosted by ACT Trustee Margaret Gale. We’ll be moving at a moderate pace through the historic farm fields and then walk into the woods along a trail to the Ammonoosuc River. This magnificent property was recently conserved with ACT to preserve the land and river for wildlife habitat as well as protect water quality for both people and wildlife and allow for the natural meandering of the Ammonoosuc River.
The group will reconvene after the walk at approximately 4 p.m. at The Wayside Inn in Bethlehem for refreshments and snacks. Come to catch up with old friends and get to know new ones. All are welcome (bring a friend!) and are free to come and go as needed. The Brews will officially run from 4 to about 5:30 p.m. but you’re invited to stay and enjoy a full meal at The Wayside Inn’s restaurant under new ownership and with a new chef as of last year.
Registration for the hike portion of this event is required – for your safety and enjoyment we must cap the walk at 20 participants so please be sure to pre-register ASAP. Be aware registration closes on Friday, October 26th. Once registered, you will receive an e-mail with details on the meeting location. Registration for The Wayside Inn is appreciated to help organizers plan accordingly.
Not able to make it to both portions? You can join either or both. If you’re only coming for the brews, 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. Advance registration is required. Details and registration information are available at act-nh.org/education-events or by calling Gal Potashnick, (603) 823-7777
