Vernal Pool Workshop for Landowners, Foresters and Conservation Commissioners
(01:00 PM - 04:00 PM)

Vernal pools are temporary woodland ponds that serve both as critical breeding habitat for a suite of amphibian species and as important feeding grounds and shelter for many reptiles, birds, and mammals. Because they are small and seasonal, these ephemeral wetlands are especially vulnerable to human impacts, but finding a vernal pool on your land or town forest doesn’t mean it’s off-limits for forestry!  Join Jeremy Wilson, Steve Roberge, and Brett Amy Thelen for a workshop on forest management with vernal pools in mind. We’ll begin indoors with an illustrated talk on vernal pool ecology and best forestry practices for vernal pool protection – including recommendations from Good Forestry in the Granite State – then head outside for a closer look at a vernal pool in spring bloom.  

2.5 category 1 SAF CFE credits available

Birds and Bunnies: A Field Tour of Young Forest Habitat
(09:00 AM - 11:00 AM)


Join UNH Cooperative Extension’s Land & Water Conservation Specialist Emma Carcagno and Wildlife Outreach Coordinator Haley Andreozzi on a field tour of young forest and shrubland habitat in Londonderry’s Musquash Conservation Area. In 2013, roughly 25-acres were cleared to create habitat for the state-endangered New England Cottontail Rabbit, part of a statewide effort to establish habitat for and help preserve the species.  

Large forest openings may look messy at first, but with time grow into areas that provide the food, nesting spots, and cover required by a variety of species. Young forests and shrublands in New Hampshire are used by more than 100 species of wildlife including mammals, reptiles, insects, and songbirds such as the yellow warbler and field sparrow. Join us on this easy walk to see how the managed area has grown into a suitable home for wildlife, and to check out what species might be inhabiting the area two years after the cut. We’ll discuss management techniques for creating young forest habitat, and habitat requirements for the variety of wildlife species that rely on this habitat - including New England Cottontails. 
 

What to Bring: Dress appropriately for the weather, and wear comfortable walking shoes. Don’t forget your binoculars to take a closer look at birds that might be using the area!

Registration is requested, but not required. More information on the event can be found at extension.unh.edu/NEC.

Buying & Producing Good Quality Hay
(06:30 PM - 08:00 PM)

Buying or producing good quality hay is an art and a science. Livestock need hay which is nutritious for growth and production, and good quality hay will reduce the amount of grain that needs to be supplemented.

 

To the untrained eye, hay is hay; however, there are great variations in nutrient quality. Looking at stage of growth, leafiness, color, etc., can be ways of evaluating hay and distinguishing good from bad.

 

There are also a lot of tricks to the trade in producing good hay. Many advances in science and hay-making equipment have made hay-making a more precise art.
