Join Will Broussard of the Mt. Washington Observatory as he tells 'Tales From the Home of the World's Worst Weather: A Talk About Mt.Washington.'


Bitter cold, dense fog, heavy snow, and record winds: Mount Washington is known worldwide for its unpredictable and dangerous weather. For a mountain its size, why is Mt. Washington called the 'Home of the World’s Worst Weather?'


Join Mount Washington Observatory's Will Broussard for an investigation into the unique life and work of weather observers stationed at the observatory year-round. We will explore how the mountain's weather works and what it can tell us about New England’s own weather patterns. This program will include interactive demonstrations, weather instruments, stunning photography, and video footage from the summit. This exciting program is appropriate for adults and children alike.


Will Broussard is the Observatory’s Education Coordinator, where he coordinates and leads programs on Mt. Washington’s natural, cultural, and scientific history. He has an undergraduate degree in biology from the University of Maine and a Master of Science degree in environmental studies from Antioch University New England in Keene. Originally from midcoast Maine, his passions include hiking and bird watching.


Made possible by the Friends of the Athol Public Library.
