Join Matt Tarr, Extension Professor & Wildlife Specialist, and Matt Kelly, Cheshire County Forester, to learn how to recognize and improve habitat for wildlife in forests, fields, and wetlands. The workshop will be held outdoors at Distant Hill Gardens and Nature Trail in Walpole and Alstead and include a slow-paced off-trail walk over moderate terrain, with many stops for discussion.

During this workshop we will visit some of the forest, field, and wetland habitats of Distant Hill.  

You will learn:

  • How to recognize specific features that comprise each habitat type

  • What and how specific wildlife species use each feature as habitat

  • How to create or enhance habitat opportunities for specific wildlife
