Boots & Books Hike

Boots & Books Hike   Sept. 18, 2021
Beaver Brook - Wildlife Pond Loop
A flat, easy walk around an active wildlife pond. Bring binoculars to watch the birds! Lovely views, big trees, and there are plenty of places to rest and snack.
 
Meet at 9:30 a.m. at the parking area on Proctor Hill Rd. (Rt. 130), Hollis. Directions: From Rt.101, take Rt. 13 south to Rt. 130. Stay on 130 about 4.4 miles; parking on the left at kiosk.
 
Please email Nikki (nikkiandrewsbooks@gmail.com) or contact Wilton Library (654-2581/wiltonlibrarynh@gmail.com) to register. All hikes are at your own risk and conditions permitting.
 
The group is limited to 8 walkers (plus guides); if there is sufficient interest a second hike will be scheduled. Please bring a mask to wear if we meet other hikers or gather close together; also carry water and insect repellent, and dress for the weather. Suggested but not required reading:  The Body in the Beaver Pond by Cathy Perkins.

An updated legal services list is available online here:
https://courts-state-nh-us.libguides.com/c.php?g=981853&p=7292531

Important changes: recently the Pro Bono Program and the Legal Advice and Referral Center merged to become 603 Legal Aid. Not all the programs’ websites have been updated to reflect the changes. For example, the Domestic Violence Emergency project (DOVE) is now under 603 Legal Aid but the website says it’s under Pro Bono.
