Wildflower Meadows for Pollinators
(07:00 PM - 08:30 PM)

Native bees and honey bees, alike, are suffering from a lack of food and forage habitat. Bees rely on a continuous source of quality pollen and nectar to feed themselves and their brood. By planting wildflower meadows, we can help provide bees with the flowering habitat they need for survival. Amy Papineau, UNH Cooperative Extension Field Specialist in Food & Agriculture, will discuss the many threats to the health of our native bee and honey bee populations and the steps involved in planting and maintaining a long-lived, diverse wildflower meadow to support our local pollinators.

Fall Wildflower Nature Walk - Weeks State Park Event
(01:00 PM - 04:00 PM)

 

This can be a great time of year to get outdoors and enjoy a walk in the woods.  The Weeks State Park Association is offering a free wildflower walk in the park.  We will discover the wildflowers and other signs of nature in the park with the aid of naturalist, Matt Peters.

Matt is an independent ecologist and botanist with extensive field experience in diverse North American landscapes from Alaska and the Great Plains to the forests of the northeast. His work focuses on botanical and natural resource inventory, mapping, and management in northern New England. He leads workshops on foraging, edible wild plants and plant identification. In his home community of Plainfield, VT, he is involved in local river conservation efforts, serving on the town's Flood Management Advisory Committee and other non-profit boards. Matt's past work has included researching native grassland restoration practices, and assessing the impacts of industrial forestry and rangeland management practices.

Participants should meet at the main entrance of Weeks State Park at 1 PM. Bring raingear just in case and suitable clothing and footwear for an easy walk in the Park.

Supervisory Registration Certificate- General Use
(All day)

New Hampshire requires that anyone applying pesticides commercially must be certified as a commercial pesticide applicator. This certification is required regardless of whether the applicator gets paid for the service or whether the pesticide would be classified as general use, including over the counter home owner type pesticides, or restricted use.

 

To be eligible for this Supervisory Registration Certificate a person needs to have completed 8 hours of general use instruction (core training). In order for an individual to obtain this new certification they need to participate in a series of training classes, pass a written exam and an oral board, plus show proof of insurance.

 

This instruction is intended to be a review of the information found in the Pesticide Safety Education Program study core manual and the Turf (G2) and/or the Right of Way (B) categories. It is advised that participants purchase and read manuals prior to attending the sessions. Also attending these courses does not guarantee passing the State Certification Exam.

 

REGISTER EARLY. SPACE IS LIMITED.
