Wilmot Community Association


Wandering through forests, around ponds, and across meadows inevitably leads to discovery. A flower, a bird song, a beaver trail, a collapsed foundation, a hidden cemetery, and questions. Always questions. What is the name of this flower? What bird sings that song? What does it look like inside the beaver lodge? Who built the foundation? What stories could be told about the people under these headstones? Perhaps you would like some of your questions answered when hiking a favorite trail or visiting a historic site. 

Wander Wilmot is a monthly outdoor program series that ventures into Wilmot’s natural and historic areas with an expert guide who engages our curiosity and interprets our encounters.

Spring Bird Walk - Langenau Forest

Learn to identify birds by sight and sound with life-long birder, Bill Chaisson. a birdwatcher for more than 50 years.

“I chose the college I attended because it offered ornithology. In the end, I became a geologist and studied extinct species of amoebae. Then I spent 15 years as a community journalist,” he said. “Now that I’m the property and land-use clerk for Wilmot, I have more time for birdwatching.”M/span>

Bunker Hill Cemetery

Saturday | September 17 | 10 a.m.
Join the Wilmot Cemetery Trustees for Wander Wilmot at Bunker Hill Cemetery on Bunker Hill Road.  Cemeteries are museums featuring history, art, the famous, and the infamous, past residents of a town. They are a treasure trove of town stories and lore. But they also raise questions about the lives of the people laid to rest there. The Wilmot Cemetery Trustees will lead a tour of Bunker Hill Cemetery and share its stories, history, and a few mysteries from one of Wilmot’s most interesting sites.  This program is free and open to the public, but reservations are requested. To register, please click the register button below or call 603-526-7934.
