Rocks Estate To Host Free Program On N.H. Environmentalist

The Rocks Estate on Christmas Tree Lane in Bethlehem, N.H., will host a free program titled "Saving Buffalo and Cardinal: NH's Environmentalist Earnest Baynes" on Wednesday, Sept. 19, at 7 p.m.

Baynes (1868-1925) fought to prevent the mindless slaughter of buffalo by frontiersmen, even raising herds of them here in New Hampshire. Images from his magic lantern glass slides show a buffalo team pulling him to the Claremont Agricultural Fair. Color images from these slides also show the varied wild animals he domesticated locally.

Brightly plumaged birds like the cardinal suffered a cruel fate at the hands of the fashion and hat trade that environmentalist Baynes worked to curtail. His aim was not to subdue nature but to preserve it for later generations. In his books and lectures he sought to persuade Americans that the lives and liberties of all creatures were sacred.

James Atkinson presents this program which is sponsored by the NH Humanities Council and the Ammonoosuc Chapter of NH Audubon. The program is free and open to the public.
