Grasslands & Meadows: Important Wildlife Habitat
Wednesday, 06/15/2016 (09:00 AM - 03:00 AM)

Grasslands and meadows are rare habitats in New Hampshire, and many of the wildlife species that depend on them have declined significantly over the last several decades. Learn about the maintenance required to create or maintain these habitats during a series of indoor presentations, followed by an outdoor field session at NH Fish & Game’s Lower Shaker Wildlife Management Area. We will discuss the ecology and management of grasslands, management of native pollinator habitat, common plants found in these habitats, and the history and management of the Lower Shaker WMA. The afternoon field session will include visits to a variety of grasslands and meadows and discussion of management techniques.
