NH Covert Project: 2016 Training Workshop
Wednesday, 05/04/2016 (All day)

N.H. Coverts Project volunteers are one of the most widespread, dedicated groups working for New Hampshire’s wildlife and forests. Applications are now being accepted for this year’s volunteer training workshop on May 4-7, at the Barbara C. Harris Conference Center in Greenfield.

 

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.

 

To apply for this year’s N.H. Coverts Project training, download and complete the 2016 N.H. Coverts Project Application at nhcoverts.org. The deadline for receiving applications is March 1, 2016. For more information, visit the project website at nhcoverts.org or contact Project Coordinator Haley Andreozzi at haley.andreozzi@unh.edu or (603) 862-5327.

Explore the current threats to Concord's tree canopy
Wednesday, 05/04/2016 (06:00 PM - 08:00 PM)

Come learn about invasive insects and aging trees that are compromising the health of the city's tree canopy. Concord is ground zero for the discovery of the Emerald Ash Borer and the insect is now throughout the city's landscape. Learn what your options are, how to hire an arborist, tree replacement and where you can or cannot move the ash wood to.

 

Red pine scale is an exotic invasive insect that is killing red pine trees in Concord and the surrounding areas. Learn what the first signs of infestation look like and what the best course of action is for saving a red pine tree in the landscape.

 

Concord, like many NH communities, has many trees in older age classes, some with evident defects of decay, broken branches and large limbs overhanging buildings and driveways. Learn what actions you can take before you decide to throw the tree to the demise of the chainsaws and learn about the city's current work in replacing some of Concord's tree canopy.

 

Presenters:

  • Tim Fleury and Amy Papineau, UNH Cooperative Extension
