Natural Resources Stewards Course
(All day)

Course Offers a Path to Knowing Nature

UNH Cooperative Extension announces a hands-on course for people who enjoy being outdoors and value nature to become stewards of New Hampshire’s forests, wildlife, and water resources.

The 12-session course will cover tree identification, planting, and care; forest types and the wildlife that lives within them; permaculture; ecological landscaping; land conservation and protection; wetlands; invasive species; and many more topics essential to the well-being of the state’s natural resources.

“The course is open to all,” said Mary Tebo Davis, natural resources field specialist at Cooperative Extension. “It is especially helpful for those volunteering on conservation commissions, tree committees, or watershed associations, and for those who maybe aren’t sure yet how they can help but want to make a difference.”

In exchange for learning, participants complete 40 hours of volunteer service in more than 40 natural resource areas including measuring New Hampshire’s biggest trees, inventorying natural resources, helping protect thousands of acres of land, discovering endangered species and delivering educational programs to adults and children. Volunteering can take place in one’s own community or through one of Cooperative Extension’s partnering agencies’ programs.

Spaces are still available and will be up to the start of class Sept 4.  For more information, visit nhstewards.org or call Cooperative Extension at (603) 641-6060.

The course begins September 4 and will continue for 12 consecutive Fridays from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the New Hampshire Fish and Game offices in Concord.
