Community Programs at the MNHM

March 27 – Inviting Pollinators in your yard with Joe Dwelly. Let’s take a look at gardening with the native plantings that our local pollinators rely on,, including Monarchs and milkweed, Spicebush Swallowtail and sassafras, and the Mourning Cloak and hackberry. We will also be looking at wing pattern diversity. Meet at the Marion Natural History Museum at 10:30 to 11:30 and remember to RSVP.

            April 3 – Frogs and Toads. Come learn about the frogs and toads of our region with Certified Frog Watcher Maggie Payne. We’ll take a look at some of our more common species and hopefully some live specimens. We’ll also hear about citizen science programs that you can participate in to help keep track of these important forest species. Free event. Meet at the Marion Natural History Museum at 10:30 to 11:30. Please RSVP at to ensure a seat.

            April 12 – Amphibian Ecology and Diversity in the Highest Elevations in New Hampshire. Join us as we welcome Scott Smyers, Senior Scientist with Oxbow Associates. Scott will be presenting his study of Wood Frog populations in high elevations in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. Let’s take a look at these important ecosystems hidden in plain sight, some right along hiking trails, in the White Mountains. We will hear about amphibian species distribution, changes in communities, and shifts in calling phenology that reveal how complicated these ecosystems are for amphibian’s survival. Program will be held at the Museum from 6:30 to 7:30 pm. Please remember to RSVP, and there’s a $10.00 suggested donation to the Marion Natural History Museum.
