CONCORD, NH – Sign up for a hands-on course that explores New Hampshire’s ecosystems – how trees, plants, soil, fungi, water, wildlife, and even humans are interconnected, and how we can reduce our impact and restore and protect the natural world of which we are a part.

The course begins on Friday, September 6 and runs weekly through November 22, 2019 at the Canterbury Shaker Village. Full-day sessions are held from 8:30 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. The cost of the program is $295, of which $100 is reimbursable when 40 hours of volunteer work has been completed in the first year. Scholarships are available.
