(Grantham, NH) – Presidential hopefuls now have the opportunity to engage in retail politics with binoculars in hand, thanks to a new effort to get candidates out bird watching with local conservationists in the First-in-the-Nation primary state.
The newly-launched “Primary Feathers” series of bird walks will take place throughout New Hampshire and will provide a relaxed venue in which candidates can enjoy the New Hampshire outdoors and discuss their priorities with participants.
Sheridan Brown, an avid birdwatcher and longtime conservation advocate is leading the volunteer effort. Brown, an attorney and former United States Senate aide, says “The Primary Feathers walks will have no paid activists, no pledges, no scorecards, and no pressure. We need less of the latter tactics, and more of the honest conversations that make the New Hampshire primary special.
Brown and friends will organize the walks throughout the state, working to accommodate candidates’ busy schedules. “The beaches, cities, farms, forests, lakes, mountains, and rivers of New Hampshire all feature opportunities to see amazing birds and meet some enthusiastic people who will work hard for a candidate who shares their conservation values,” added Brown.
Citizens interested in joining the walks can contact Primary Feathers via its website at primaryfeathers.org or by calling Brown at 603-865-5231. The website will also provide updates about the effort’s progress, with news, photos and candidate interviews from the walks.
