Special Event Day

June 11 is the Birds and Flowers Tour

We will continue up the Auto Road to the Cow Pasture and trail head for the Huntington Ravine Trail. This is a spectacular place to visit the rare plants and exemplary natural communities of the alpine zone. The site contains a wide diversity of low-growing alpine plants, and when the weather is good the views are truly extraordinary.

With Appalachian Mountain Club Naturalist Nicky Pizzo we will identify a variety of alpine plants and discuss their adaptations that help them to defy the extreme conditions on Mount Washington.

We will also look and listen for the American Pipit. The American Pipit is one of the few birds that nest above treeline on Mount Washington.

This van tour is 3 hours in length and will leave from the base of the Mt. Washington Auto Road at 6:00am.

This package starts at: $330
