POSTPONED Meet Dog Musher Karen Land & Sled Dog Noggin

THIS EVENT HAS BEEN POSTPONED. WE WILL RESCHEDULE TO A FUTURE DATE, TBD.

 

Please join us for this all-ages event! Iditarod Dog Musher Karen Land will be here at FPL with her sled dog, Noggin, to talk about their adventures on the trail. Land is a 3-time participant in the 1,150 mile Iditarod Sled Dog Race. In addition to sharing photos and videos from the races, Land will tell first-hand stories and discuss how the bond between human and animal allows for the completion of one of the most difficult feats in all of sports. More people have made it to the summit of Mount Everest than have made it to the Iditarod finish line behind a team of dogs.

This program is supported in part by a grant from the Fitchburg Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.

Tales From the Home of the World's Worst Weather

Bitter cold, dense fog, heavy snow, and record winds: Mount Washington is known worldwide for its unpredictable and dangerous weather. For a mountain its size, why is Mt. Washington called the “Home of the World’s Worst Weather”? While many places on Earth experience severe weather, few are inhabited by humans 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Mount Washington Observatory has been operating a continuously-staffed scientific outpost on this remote peak since 1932, providing the Observatory many remarkable stories and an intimate knowledge of the mountain.

Join Mount Washington Observatory's Will Broussard for an investigation into the unique life and work of weather observers stationed at the observatory year-round. We will explore how the mountain's weather works and what it can tell us about New England’s own weather patterns. This program will include interactive demonstrations, weather instruments, stunning photography, and video footage from the summit. This exciting program is appropriate for adults, teens, and children ages 6 and up.

This program is supported in part by a grant from the Fitchburg Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.
