BETHLEHEM, N.H. -- On Sunday an owl from Squam Lakes Natural Science Center in Holderness will be the special guest of the Adair Country Inn & Restaurant at the conclusion of its Full Moon Snowshoe Evening.
"Our Full Moon Snowshoe events are meant to be fun, but we also like to be able to educate our guests about what they are seeing as they snowshoe around the Adair property, so we have partnered with Squam Lakes Natural Science Center," said innkeeper Ilja Chapman. "Having a naturalist from the Science Center lead our hike will give guests a chance to learn about the 200-acre property and the animals who inhabit the fields and woods of northern New Hampshire. And we are so pleased that the Science Center is bringing along one of its owls so that we can learn about its habits and habitat."
The evening begins at 5:30 p.m. with a New England-style buffet in the fire-placed Granite Room at Adair, followed by a moderate guided snowshoe walk on some of the trails of the 200-acre property, with a finale of s'mores and hot drinks around the fire pit. The Science Center's owl will join the group at the fire pit, where the naturalist will share some myths and facts about one of nature's most beautiful and elusive creatures.
