Wildlife Action Plan Update - Exeter Input Session
(06:00 PM - 08:30 PM)

The NH Wildlife Action Plan is being updated and we'd like your input!  Five input sessions are being held around the state in April-May to gather ideas for actions from people who are closely connected with, and concerned about, protecting wildlife and habitats. Help to make the revised NH Wildlife Action Plan an even more useful and informative guide for 2015-2025!

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.

(All day)

Embracing the Shaker Lifestyle & Legacy through Permaculture Design

A Permaculture Design Certification Course rooted in history, meaningful dialogue, the connection to holistic rhythms and beautifully skilled design

This April, spring into a unique and deep learning experience through ecological design that will shift the way you move through your life. Perhaps you are curious about the study of permaculture. It could be that there is a home landscape project you would like to design and implement using less resources and less maintenance. Maybe you are looking for a new way to view the world’s complicated array of problems…as opportunities? Would you like to discover your ‘ecological self’ and live more harmoniously and in tune with nature and the natural world?

As we plan and design a more sustainable and holistic world for ourselves and future generations, the Shakers have much to teach us about:

  • How much is enough
  • Simplicity
  • Multi-functionality in all we do
  • Finding contentment in who we are, what we have and what we do
  • Making a lot with a little
  • Resiliency

Join Lauren Chase-Rowell, Stacey Doll and Mary Tebo Davis on a journey of self exploration, professional level design work, deep connection and understanding of natural cycles and rhythms, and the ability to make your own life more meaningful and resilient simultaneously turning global unknowns into positive actions.

About Lauren Chase-Rowell, Stacey Doll and Mary Tebo Davis

Your instructors for this program are Lauren Chase-Rowell, Stacey Doll and Mary Tebo Davis – and you are in good hands with an enthusiastic teaching team!! Combined, they have over:

  • 40 years experience in contemplative and holistic practices
  • 50 years experience in design work
  • 60 years experience in teaching and homesteading

Their approach to teaching permaculture is unique in that they bring authenticity, earth-wisdom, and deep connection between nature and our daily lives, while building on the solid foundation of science, horticulture, and design found in regional permaculture design certificate courses.

As we engage in this opportunity as a learning community, this class becomes more than a permaculture design certification course.
