Primary Feathers effort connects presidential candidates with local conservationists and nature.
(Randolph, NH) – Former Massachusetts Governor and Republican presidential candidate Bill Weld will visit the Randolph Community Forest and nearby Durand Lake Recreation Area for a bird walk and conversation about environmental policy with local conservationists.
WHAT: The bird walk with Gov. Weld is being hosted by Primary Feathers—an entirely volunteer effort to get every presidential candidate to go bird watching while in the Granite State. The walks are an opportunity for candidates and conservation-minded voters to share their views on environmental policy while admiring New Hampshire’s birds, wildlife, and scenery. The 10,000-acre Randolph Community Forest in the heart of the White Mountains was chosen as the location of this walk because it is one of New Hampshire’s biggest local conservation success stories. The area was conserved as a result of dedicated individuals, nonprofit organizations, and elected officials working in close partnership at all levels of government.
