For many residents and visitors to Peterborough, N.H., Cunningham Pond is their special place. The 40-acre pond is perched above the historic downtown, in the shadow of Pack Monadnock, and home to the town beach. It's a community treasure. But currently the largest parcel of land on the pond is for sale...
"Cunningham Pond is one of the places people love most in Peterborough. Protecting it today will ensure it can be enjoyed for generations to come."- Elizabeth Thomas, former select board member
Picturesque Ponds & Laughing Loons
29th Annual Celebration
Join us Saturday, September 15, from 9 to 11 a.m. You'll enjoy nature photographer John Rockwood's presentation on common loons of New Hampshire lakes and ponds, featuring video clips of seldom-seen loon behaviors. An optional field trip to a Peterborough pond follows the program. Event sponsored by The Frank Massin Agency.
Have you noticed a lot of dragonflies this summer? Thanks to all the ponds and lakes in the Monadnock region, there are a lot of places where they like to hang out. Still, they seem to be more active than usual, and some think the weather is playing a role in their behavior, as reported by The Washington Post.
While I am proud of our accomplishments, there is more work to be done ... as highlighted in the story above about Cunningham Pond. (Perhaps you've also read the recent
Monadnock Ledger-Transcript article.) I look forward to sharing more about this priority conservation project with you at our Annual Celebration on Saturday.
Thank you for recognizing that land and water are our region's most valuable resources, and that it takes an entire community to protect and care for them.
