Volunteers Needed for Lyme Disease & Tick Research
(06:30 PM - 08:00 PM)

About this Project:  UNH Cooperative Extension researchers are looking for volunteers to help determine the spread of blacklegged ticks in northern NH by surveying deer and moose at hunter check stations. New Hampshire has the highest incidence of Lyme disease in the country, and is in the top 10 states for Babesiosis and Anaplasmosis. All three diseases are spread by blacklegged tick.  Volunteers are needed to help determining the prevalence of this tick throughout the state, particularly in Northern New Hampshire.  Deer check stations provide an efficient way of determining the presence and general abundance of blacklegged ticks in an area.   

 Requirements for Volunteers:

•    Attend training session (Oct. 1, Lancaster) to learn search methods

•    Sign up for at least 2 dates in October-­?November at a check station (see sites,

      below) to examine animals

•    Ability to work in challenging conditions!  Volunteers need to be prepared to  

               o  handle ticks and dead animals

               o  work in cold weather

               o  wear clothing that may get blood-­?stained

               o  work early in the morning (often 8AM or earlier) until dark (around 5PM)

SurveyLocations (Volunteers will sign up for locations at Oct. 1 training):  Survey sites include deer check stations in the following northern New Hampshire towns: Clarksville, Milan, Pittsburg, Jefferson, Enfield, Littleton, Lisbon, Plymouth, Loudon, Franklin, Meredith, Plainfield

Timber Harvesting Systems - Canterbury
(08:30 AM - 12:00 PM)

Free Program

There are two dates. Choose the location best suited to your needs.

October 4, 2014 - Canterbury

 or

October 18, 2014 - Washington

 

Not all timber harvests are the same. Different types of logging equipment can be used in different ways for certain impacts – or to meet specific goals. Learn how different equipment can match the conditions of the woods and provide different results.

 

In Canterbury, look at 3 timber harvests completed by whole tree chipping, conventional, and cut-to-length. In Washington, visit 2 sites and focus exclusively on “mechanized harvests,” which are whole tree chipping and cut-to-length harvesting systems.

 

Learn why these systems were used for the different sites, their strengths and weaknesses, as well as other considerations. Whether you want to conduct a harvest on your woodlot or learn more about how and why timber harvesting is done, this program will be a fun and interesting way to learn about options that are available.

 

Dress for the weather and bring food and drink for the field. Be advised we will car pool to the field site in vans. For more information see the event flyer.

 

Space is limited. There is no fee for participating but registration is required. Register online or mail the attached flyer registration form to hold your space in the workshop.
