2015 Cottrell-Baldwin Environmental Lecture Series
(07:00 PM - 08:30 PM)

 

March Weekly Series

Like a Pebble in a Pond:
Ripples of Land Use Changes Over Time
The histories of farming, forests, wildlife and people are entwined in the northeast. The impact of land use change will continue to ripple through the future of our farms, forests, wildlife and people who depend upon them. This winter, our annual lecture series examines landscape history and land use change – by both looking back and considering what may lie ahead.

 

Week 1

“Forests for the People” What’s Next for America’s Eastern National Forests?
David Govatski, US Forest Service (Ret) Co-author of the book “Forests for the People”, David will present a slide-illustrated talk examining the vital ecological, social and economic issues facing America’s eastern national forests today and in the future. Case studies include shale oil extraction, restoration ecology, invasive insects, burgeoning recreation and calls for preservation vs. multiple use management.

Emerald Ash Borer for Birders Workshop
(07:00 PM - 08:30 PM)

Help track the Emerald Ash Borer

Forest Health officials need the help of outdoor enthusiasts, including birders, in detecting emerald ash borer (EAB), the most destructive forest pest in North America. Its larvae tunnel just under the bark of ash trees, killing them quickly. You can help us locate this pest by spotting the characteristic bark damage caused by woodpeckers feeding on EAB larvae.In this workshop, Molly Heuss with NH Division of Forest & Lands and Steve Roberge, UNH Cooperative Extension, will teach you what to look for and how to report potentially infested trees. They will also discuss the history and biology of emerald ash borer, the status of infestations in NH, the impacts this insect is expected to have on NH’s forests and landscapes, and the steps NH Forest Health officials are taking to manage this insect. Phil Brown of NH Audubon will discuss the birds that feed on the Emerald Ash Borer and how to identify them, and why their feeding behavior leaves the characteristic “blonding” on the ash trees, as well as provide a landowner’s (NH Audubon) perspective on EAB infestations.

Informational Workshop on New Hampshire Current Use Tax Rules
(06:30 PM - 08:00 PM)

 

Rural landowners of 10+ acres can enroll their property in the state “CURRENT USE” program, and lower their property taxes. However, this protected property also has restrictions on its future use.


We will be there to explain Current Use assessment and the different aspects of the program so you can decide if this land conservation opportunity is right for you. If your land is already in Current Use, this will be a good refresher course to remind you of regulations.


Remember that a detailed written management plan is now required for forestland enrolled in the “Stewardship” category.

Week 3

March 24th Boom to Bust and Back Again: Is Past A Prologue for NH Agriculture?

Stephen Taylor, former Commissioner of Agriculture, is well known as a speaker who is both informative and entertaining. With decades experience as proprietor of a working dairy farm and maple operation in the village of Meriden in Plainfield, Taylor speaks with authority to the rise and fall of the great sheep boom, hill farm culture, the influence of the NH Grange, family dairy farms and 4H. The advent of new niche markets, local foods and farmers markets and unique new specialty “boutique farms” and soaring interest in backyard poultry, sheep and goats, llamas and alpacas – is creating a renaissance for farming in NH. What will markets, climates and public interest add to the red hot trends in our growing agricultural sectors?

Week 4

Oh to Be Young Again: An Aging Forest Means Trouble for Some NH Wildlife
Jim Oehler, State Lands Habitat Biologist, New Hampshire Fish and Game Dept.
The landscape of northeastern and north central states has changed. One big difference is the amount of land now covered with houses, roads, and other development. Another, more-subtle transition has also taken place: We have more mature forest today than we did 50 years ago. Many wildlife species do not live in mature woods. Populations including wood turtle, indigo bunting, New England cottontail, and bobcat have declined. No fewer than 65 reptiles, birds, and mammals – all of which need young forest – have been designated species of greatest conservation need in the Northeast. Learn how the partners in the Young Forest Project are working to change this trend.
