DAY OF CARING
9:00am Monday, September 12, 2022
Chapman Sanctuary and Visny Woods
740 Mt Israel Road • Center Sandwich, NH 03227
The United Way is sending a team of volunteers to CSVW as part of the United Way's Day of Caring
The group will perform some very important maintenance on the trails, in the gardens and all over the sanctuary grounds. CSVW Wildlife depends on the protected environment provided by Chapman Sanctuary and Visny Woods and it is imperative to keep trails open, clear of brush and passable for both the wildlife and the public. The gardens need weeding and edging in order to continue to flourish, especially for the many critically important pollinators at the sanctuary.
Black-throated Blue Warbler
Black & White Warbler
American Gold Finch
We believe we may have spotted a family or grouping of American Kestrels!
As our team of bird walkers was leaving the meadow and heading down to Teacup Lake, looking back there were 3 birds soaring/circling above the pines. We were quite far from their location and it was difficult to get a good
look at them. But based on their size and coloring they appeared to be Kestrels.
