One of 17 museums on the statewide NH Heritage Trail, The Libby Museum in Wolfeboro features a variety of special programs and events in August.
From August 15 to 19, The Libby will host an Outdoor Skills program for youth, ages 11 to 14. Led by Chris Russell, the program will teach youth how to set-up camp, cook, carve, preserve plants, and predict the weather.
In collaboration with Squam Lake Science Center, free live animal demonstrations will take place every Wednesday at 2 pm. In August, award winning nature photographer Roger Irwin’s work will also be on display. Irwin will speak and provide insight on his work on August 24 at 7 pm
“Roger is a totally inspiring guy and one of the most generous people I know,” said Alana Albee, executive director at The Libby. “He has let us use his lovely photos in our advertising this year without any charge, which has been so very appreciated.”
For those interested in the collection at The Libby, visitors are in for a treat, as it includes everything from displays of butterflies and moths to Abenaki relics, bears, birds and a polar bear.
“We are one of the largest natural museums in the state,” added Albee. “You can enjoy a picnic on our property, too, with beautiful views of Lake Winnipesaukee.”
