Speaking for Wildlife: New Hampshires Wild History
Wednesday, 02/10/2016 (06:30 PM - 07:30 PM)

Take a virtual journey through New Hampshire’s past, focusing on changes in the land and how wildlife populations have responded over time. Learn why changes in habitat in our past are behind the decline of many of our rarest species today, and why others are more abundant than in the past. You’ll also learn what you can do to help! Presented by Katherine Gillman.

Deering Wildlife Sanctuary Harvest Tour
Saturday, 02/13/2016 (09:00 AM - 12:00 PM)

Join Phil Brown (Director of Land Management at NH Audubon), Matt Tarr (Wildlife Specialist, UNH Cooperative Extension), Jeremy Turner (Forester, Meadowsend Timberlands), and Wendy Ward (Soil Conservationist, NRCS) for an informative walking tour of an active timber harvest. A timber harvest is being conducted on the Deering Wildlife Sanctuary to diversify wildlife habitat, especially early successional habitats, and to provide foraging resources for wood ducks, beaver, snowshoe hare, and moose, in additional to other species of wildlife.

 

NH Audubon’s land manager will discuss how different types of management can benefit a diverse assortment of wildlife, including many of our familiar bird and mammal species. Foresters will show you how and why some of these changes are taking shape on the landscape and will discuss the future of the sanctuary’s forests.

 

Meet at the Deering Wildlife Sanctuary’s upper parking area along Clement Hill Road to carpool to the harvest site along North Road at 9 am. Bring a snack, beverage, snowshoes (if conditions permit), and dress for the weather. Back by noon.

2016 Bunny Blitz
Saturday, 02/27/2016 (09:00 AM - 12:00 PM)

Citizen science volunteers needed. Did you know that winter is the best time to survey for cottontail rabbits? They leave telltale signs (pellets) in the snow, making it possible to locate and sample for different species. This winter, wildlife biologists need help from citizen science volunteers to conduct surveys for Eastern cottontail rabbits in southern New Hampshire.  On February 27, 2016, 9:00am-Noon, UNH Cooperative Extension and New Hampshire Fish and Game will train volunteers to collect pellets from Eastern cottontail rabbits on public land in Hudson, NH. Eastern cottontails are a known threat to the state-endangered New England cottontail. At this event, which combines training and a 1/2-day pellet collection "Blitz," wildlife biologists with UNH Cooperative Extension will introduce the project, describe rabbit habitat, and explain sampling and data collection techniques. Volunteers will work in teams to survey nearby rabbit habitat. Then, we’ll meet back up to submit samples, share findings, and drink hot chocolate! Participants will also receive their own supplies and instructions to collect samples on their own following the training, if interested. 

More about Cottontails:  Eastern cottontails were introduced into New England as a game species in the early 1900s and have since become the dominant rabbit in New Hampshire. Unlike the native, state-endangered New England cottontail, Eastern cottontails are better able to survive in fragmented, human dominated landscapes. NH Fish & Game needs your help to better understand where Eastern cottontails occur in New Hampshire, how abundant they are, and the potential threat to New England cottontails. 

What to Bring: Volunteers should come dressed for the weather, and prepared to spend the morning outdoors. Waterproof boots or snowshoes are recommended, depending on snow depth.

Winter Tree & Shrub Identification Workshop
Sunday, 02/28/2016 (01:00 PM - 03:00 PM)

Are you interested in learning how to identify some of the common trees and shrubs of the Monadnock region in winter? Then this workshop is just what you are looking for. It is easier than you may think and a great way to learn more about the plants that make up our forests, fields, and wetlands.

 

The workshop will be led by Steve Roberge, Forest Resource Specialist with Cheshire County Extension. Steve will teach you the key criteria to look for when attempting to identify woody plants without their leaves - such as overall form, bark, twig features, leaf scars and fruit remnants.

 

This workshop is for all knowledge and skill levels. Bring a hand lens if you have one, dress for the weather, and bring snow shoes. There will be a limited number of snowshoes available to borrow.

The Emerald Ash Borer (EAB)
Tuesday, 03/01/2016 (06:00 PM - 08:00 PM)

Come learn about the Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) and the effects this invasive insect will have on the forest and landscapes of Franklin and surrounding towns. The EAB is the most destructive non-native insect in North America. Over the past few years, it has been found infesting and killing ash trees in forests and landscapes throughout central and southern New Hampshire. Experiences in other states tell us we can't eradicate EAB from New Hampshire, but we can protect high-value trees and slow the spread of the ash mortality. Come learn the facts and get your questions answered. Free and open to all.
