SOLD OUT - Woodcock Walkabout


Leipold Property
478 Center Street (Route 28)
Wolfeboro, NH 03894
United States

The American Woodcock is considered a species in greatest need of conservation in the New Hampshire Wildlife Action Plan. The "singing fields”, roosting fields, and wet thickets that woodcock need also benefit many other wildlife species, and you may be able to create or maintain these habitats on property you own or manage.

Join UNH Cooperative Extension Forestry & Wildlife Specialists Matt Tarr and Wendy Scribner and Forester Rich Gerard as we tour Bob and Trish Leipold’s property. We’ll view management practices the Leipold’s have implemented to create habitat that the woodcock need to survive and successfully raise their young.  Stay until twilight to see the aerial courtship display of this amazing migratory bird.  Bring your binoculars!

A short pre-recorded presentation on Woodcock & Snipe Identification and Ecology will be provided for workshop participants to watch prior to attending this workshop.  

Registration is limited to 15 participants.
