Everyone is invited to pack a picnic and come early to have supper on the Strafford Common with the authors!

For native and visitor alike, the New England landscape has a rich allure. This grand sweep of land is a living tapestry woven of interconnected bioregions and natural communities whose compositions of plants and animals have evolved over time.
