[CANCELED] - Woodcock Walk & Talk
Due to the public health concern caused by the COVID-19 virus, UNH administration made the decision to cancel all UNH Cooperative Extension events, programs and noncredit classes through April 5. The health and safety of our staff and the many members of our New Hampshire communities that participate in our programs is most important. We appreciate your understanding and patience during this uncertain time.
There is no need to bring your work into the county office at this time.
About the Event
The American Woodcock is considered a species in greatest need of conservation in the New Hampshire Wildlife Action Plan. The “singing fields” and forest habitat that woodcock need also benefit many other wildlife species, and these habitats can be managed on a small scale right in your backyard.
Join Wendy Scribner to tour Bob and Trish Leipold’s property with wildlife biologist Ed Robinson and consulting forester Rich Gerard. We will view management practices the Leipold’s have implemented to create habitat that the woodcock need to survive and successfully raise their young. Stay for refreshments, and at twilight see the aerial courtship display of this amazing migratory bird.
