Mascoma River Greenway Bird Walk

Alice Peck Day Hospital
10 Alice Peck Day Drive
Lebanon, NH 03766

For the third consecutive year, Mascoma Chapter Steering Committee member Jeff MacQueen will lead a bird walk along the Mascoma River.

This year we will explore the newly opened (July 21, 2018) Mascoma River Greenway Trail (MRG). This paved, segment offers lovely views of the Mascoma River along its course beginning just east of Alice Peck Day Hospital (APD) then traveling westerly to its current terminus near Glen Road and the Miracle Mile. Expect to see a good variety of songbirds and perhaps some waterfowl.

Meet at the access point parking area opposite APD on Mascoma Street. From any starting point, head to I-89 Exit 17. Coming from the west, turn right at the bottom of the ramp and head towards Lebanon on Mechanic Street. From the east, turn left at the bottom of the Exit 17 ramp and also head toward Lebanon on Mechanic Street. After about a ½ mile, you’ll see a left hand turn that passes through the old granite underpass. On the other side, turn right onto Mascoma Street. The parking area will be on your right a few hundred feet farther along.

Foot travel will be on a level, paved surface. Bring binoculars and/or a spotting scope as you prefer. Bug repellant, particularly with tick prevention in mind, is highly recommended. The walk is free and open to the public.

The walk is co-sponsored by the Mascoma Chapter of NH Audubon and the Mascoma River Local Advisory Committee.
