Letter: Bring back Enchanted Forest

Many in the Concord area will remember New Hampshire Audubon’s Enchanted Forest, an event that celebrated autumn and the mysteries of nature. Highlights included trails illuminated by jack-o-lanterns, humorous and educational skits with larger than life characters, stories told around a campfire, hot apple cider with homemade goodies and much more.

The last Enchanted Forest was held in 2004, but plans are brewing to bring it back in 2013. If you would like to be part of the organizing committee to help put the enchantment back in the forest, please join us on Tuesday at 7 p.m. at the McLane Center on 84 Silk Farm Road.

Contact me at ruthnaturally@myfairpoint.net if you would like to volunteer, even if you can’t attend this meeting.

You don't need jackolanterns and campfire stories to celebrate the mysteries of nature and the enchanted forest. Simply head out into the woods this autum. You will experience breathtaking scenery, a fiery display of color - both on the trees and along the flanks of spawning brook trout, the crisp autumn air, flights of geese as they wing their way south, the thrills and displays of the moose and whitetail deer mating seasons, the industriousness of squirrels as they prepare for winter, a feeding frenzy among bears and other critters as they fatten up for a long winter to come . . . and much more!
