Advanced Identification Skills for Grasses
Tuesday, 07/26/2016 (All day)

Monday, July 25 & Tuesday, July 26. This two-day workshop is intended to teach natural resource professionals the skills necessary to identify any New England grass species (Family Poaceae) using Gleason and Cronquist's "Manual of Vascular Plants", the only complete and accurate taxonomic key available for this family. A combination of lecture and laboratory instruction will be used to familiarize you with this challenging group. Instruction will focus on the ecology of grasses, understanding and recognizing their unique morphology, and mastering technical terminology. Through carefully guided exploration of native specimens, you will gain solid experience identifying species using a technical key. This workshop is for all experience levels, but some prior botanical experience is recommended. 

12 CEHs for Wetland and Soil Scientists, 3 CEUs for Surveyors, 12 CEUs for Foresters. Also approved for 6 NHDES Subsurface Bureau credit hours.

Scientist for a Day on Great Bay
Tuesday, 07/26/2016 (08:30 AM - 02:30 PM)

Saturday July 16, Tuesday July 26, Thursday August 4, Sunday August 7.

Join fellow explorers on an activity-based cruise from Portsmouth up the Piscataqua River into the Great Bay Estuary and to the Jackson Estuarine Laboratory. You are likely to get your hands wet as you learn about marine and estuarine ecosystems on this informal, educational cruise. You'll be invited to tow for plankton and marvel at its movement in a magnifying scope; capture water from below the surface and test its characteristics; observe, handle, and hear about plants and animals from the unique habitats of the estuary; deploy an otter trawl; and find out what scientists study about the Great Bay.

 

The Great Bay Estuary system adds approximately 150 miles to New Hampshire's relatively small coastline. Those 150 miles include everything from industrial, historical, and military landmarks, to a wildlife refuge and National Estuarine Research Reserve. There will be opportunities to learn more about these landmarks and share what you know. There is also plenty of time on-board to just enjoy the fresh air, sights, and sounds of the estuary with your on-board companions as we scan for bald eagles, osprey, and harbor seals.

 

You will cruise aboard the 50 foot UNH Research Vessel, Gulf Challenger, under the guidance of the enthusiastic and knowledgeable UNH Cooperative Extension Marine Docents, a New Hampshire Sea Grant water resources educator, and the crew of the Gulf Challenger. Time aboard the boat is approximately 5 hours including about a half-hour visit to the Jackson Estuarine Laboratory.

Flexible Workplace Options
Wednesday, 07/27/2016 (All day)

Flexible Workplace Options – UNH offers employees the option to request a change in work schedule, depending on the workload in the employee’s department. Recommendations from Cooperative Extension’s Work Family Balance committee supports this concept, and the Leadership Team made a commitment to explore opportunities in this area.

 

UNH believes workplace flexibility for employees can support the university in a number of ways, when feasible.  

 

To support employees and supervisors in developing flexible work arrangements, we’ll review the process of requesting a formal flexible work arrangement at the following informational sessions:  (more information here)

They Sawed Up A Storm - Weeks State Park Event
Thursday, 07/28/2016 (07:00 PM - 09:00 PM)

Join Sarah Smith, author of They Sawed Up A Storm.   In 1942, a group of New Hampshire women operated a sawmill on the shores of Turkey Pond, in Concord. New Hampshire. The sawmill, one of two on the pond, was built by the US Forest Service to saw up what remained of the logs stored in the water from the 1938 hurricane.

 

Sarah will present how she first learned about the women's mill from John Willey, the son of one of the women who worked there. John's mother, Laura, had a scrapbook which was a tattered collection of snapshots and newspaper clippings depicting the women at work between 1942 and 1943. Sarah's book begins with an account of the hurricane of 1938 and the path of destruction it left from Long Island to northern New England. Over 600 lives were lost, cities were flooded and property damaged was extensive. Join us for an exciting adventure through the great hurricane of 1938 and the determination of the group of New England women! Go to www.TurkeyPond.com to learn more.
