WelcomeBackCrows

It's...CROW TIME!

Our Lawrence winter crows are back!  Join us to toast their return on Nov. 17, 2:30 to 5:30 PM. First we'll have some beer at the Spicket River Brewery  and learn a bit about crows and the winter roosting phenomenon. Then, we'll watch the crows congregate for their nighttime roost in the trees near the Duck Bridge.  It's a spectacular sight!

Voyagers complete 117-mile trek down the Merrimack!
