Wednesdays at Wildcat Outdoor Tours

Wednesdays at Wildcat Outdoor Tours

July 02, 2014 - August 27, 2014

Wednesdays at Wildcat provide opportunities to explore Wildcat Mountain with a Tin Mountain Conservation Center naturalist learning about the diverse ecology of Pinkham Notch in the White Mountain National Forest. Program topics change weekly and include learning about the flora and fauna of the forest; discovering what lives within and contributes to the health of a fresh-water pond ecosystem; the high-alpine, summit environment; and the geology of the surrounding mountains and Presidential Range.

Program Descriptions

Pond Full of Fun
Join us for a couple of hours of "mucking around" for frogs, toads, and insect life. A Tin Mountain Conservation Center naturalist will have nets, bug boxes, hand lenses, identification cards and all the things you need to explore the beautiful pond at the base of Wildcat Mountain. The pond lets us view the world within a world as we learn about the wonderful creatures in the pond environment.

Alpine Discovery / Gondola Skyride to the Summit
Explore the incredible natural features at the summit of Wildcat Mountain. Led by a naturalist from Tin Mountain Conservation Center, this program is ideal for the entire family. From your Gondola, enjoy a bird's eye view of the wonderful array of forest communities and search for a deer or a black bear eating berries down below! Examine mountain wildflowers, ancient schist rocks, and the stunted boreal Spruce/Fir forest at elevations above 4,000'.

The Way of the Wildcat Trail to Thompson Brook Falls
Join us for an informative hike along the Way of the Wildcat Trail and discover the spectacular Thompson Brook Falls within the White Mountain National Forest. Cool, moist mosses abound, colorful wildflowers capture the essence of the forest, and the waterfall soothes the spirit on this 1 mile in and 1-mile out exploration.
