Started in 1995, the N.H. Coverts Project has trained over 500 volunteers to promote wildlife conservation and forest stewardship throughout New Hampshire. Each year, 25 conservation-minded New Hampshire residents gather with a team of natural resource professionals for a three-and-a-half day workshop, where they learn about wildlife and forest ecology, habitat management, land conservation, and effective outreach. Although there is a $50 registration fee, all lodging, food and other expenses are funded by program sponsors. In exchange for the training, participants commit to at least 40 hours of volunteer work in the coming year and to motivate others to become stewards of the state's wildlife and forest resources.
