Dear Joe,

A few weeks ago staff, trustees and members gathered in North Conway for our 2019 Annual Meeting at the Weather Discovery Center to reflect on the past year. This year we presented some of the changes that have come out of our Strategic Plan including my title to Executive Director and a reorganizing of staff responsibilities to support a crucial part of the strategic plan: sustainability. This new organizational flow will allow most of the day-to-day operations to be handled via two Directors. Brian Fitzgerald has taken on the role of Director of Science and Education and Brenda Sullivan’s title is now Director of Finance and Administration. This new structure allows me to get out more, meet with members and interested organizations and raise awareness of our mission and subsequently our funding levels.

The meeting also included a special presentation from Dr. Eric Kelsey on his current Snowpack Sensing research project. Eric’s work studying snowpack began last summer with a number of Plymouth State University students who set up sensors at various elevations on Mount Washington to monitor and measure snowpack profiles throughout the season. After the presentation, Eric led members on a hike to the lowest snowpack sensing station off the Tuckerman Ravine Trail. 

Thank you to everyone who attended and we look forward to another wonderful year with your support!

State Representatives at the Summit

NH State Representatives Visit MWO

Observatory staff recently hosted a group of NH State Representatives from the Science, Technology and Energy Committee. Delegates toured the weather station and took part in a presentation on current research from Director of Research Dr. Eric Kelsey. A lively Q&A followed with a discussion about our work in observation, education and research with particular interest in investigations examining our changing climate and the resources needed to sustain our work at the summit. Given the group’s experience with renewable energy projects, wind energy was on everyone’s mind however, realistically the technology needed for wind turbines to withstand 200+ MPH and heavy icing may be a ways off!


Interns Arrive for the Summer

With summer in full swing and thousands of visitors planning to visit Mount Washington State Park and the Observatory, we are grateful for the extra help of our summit interns. During their week-long shifts, interns learn to take hourly observations, assist with weather station tours, and conduct summer long research projects. This year, our interns arrive with areas of interest in Meteorology, Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences, Environmental and Energy Resource Management, Earth and Planetary Science, Geography-Meteorology and Emergency Management. Visit our About Us page (scroll to the bottom of the page) to read about our current interns and learn more about our Internship Program online. 


'Science in the Mountains' Lecture Series

We love being able to bring science programs to our community every year with our free summer lecture series Science in the Mountains! Lectures cover a broad spectrum of topics including bee decline in New Hampshire, connecting people to science through photography, and a visit from the notorious Marty Engstrom about his time on the summit working for WMTW-TV. (Check out the full schedule here!)

These programs, held every Wednesday from July 17th through August 21st at the Weather Discovery Center, are family friendly and free for all, but we are always looking for sponsors to help bring in high quality speakers for our community. If you or your business are interested in supporting Science in the Mountains, please reach out to our Education Department!

Jack Middleton 

At our Annual Meeting, Chuck Henderson, Special Assistant for Policy and Projects to New Hampshire Senator Jeanne Shaheen, read a congressional record honoring Jack Middleton with a tribute celebrating his 62 years of dedicated service to MWO after deciding to step down as the Secretary of the Board of Trustees this year. Many may know Jack as the president of McLane Middleton, one of the largest law practices in New Hampshire, but we know him as the devoted former observer who diligently takes notes at board meetings, attends nearly every event, and who continuously supports our work. His dedication is unparalleled and we can't thank Jack enough for his leadership & guidance!
