Telling Your Story with Maps
Tuesday, 06/27/2017 (01:00 AM - 04:00 PM)

Have an interesting historical downtown that you want people to visit? Looking to engage people of a community to explore their town and provide their thoughts? Hoping to have your audience prepare for meeting by looking at maps/pictures/videos? Driven by Esri's ArcGIS Online, Story Maps are a great way to share your information and tell your story to a wide variety of stakeholders (no coding experience necessary!)

Activities focus on getting up and running with Story Maps, including how to create and configure the map to best communicate with your audience. We will also use a mobile app, Snap2Map, to build Story Maps in the field with a mobile device.

Hands on with today's forest insects and diseases
Friday, 07/14/2017 (08:30 AM - 03:30 PM)

During this all-day, “in the field” workshop, small groups will rotate through seven stations at Fox Research and Demonstration Forest. At each station there will be a unique set of insects or diseases that a specialist will show you, let you handle, and then moderate a discussion of how these pests could influence your forest management. Bring your own samples or pictures of pests or damage you’re seeing in the woods and our experts will ID it. Gather that weird forest insect or damage and stump the experts!

Kensan-Devan Wildlife Sanctuary Birds and Forestry
Saturday, 07/15/2017 (08:00 AM - 11:00 AM)


In 2015, NH Audubon adopted a forest management plan that is focused on managing high priority bird populations such as Scarlet Tanager, Wood Thrush, and Canada Warbler. Join Phil Brown (NH Audubon’s Director of Land Management), Jeremy Turner (Forester, Meadowsend Timberlands), and Chad Witko (Graduate Student, Antioch University) for a walking tour of a recently harvested forest with bird populations in mind. Learn about the breeding birds that were documented last summer on NH Audubon’s fourth largest property and the long-term efforts to monitor them as the forest responds to this change. Come prepared to learn about (and look for!) the bird species using these landscapes, planned management scenarios, current breeding bird research, and some of the stewardship improvements on the horizon.

The education and information gained from this program can offer a personal satisfaction that you are making a difference in the care of New Hampshire’s resources in whatever form you would like to take that on.  This hands-on learning experience will cover topics including how to identify plants and trees, NH’s wetlands, living soils, forest management, orienteering, invasive species, ecological landscaping, sustainable living, forest communities & wildlife habitats, pollinators and much more.  In the end, you will gain tools that will empower you to make a direct impact on New Hampshire's Natural Resources.  

 

This program affords participants the opportunity to earn the title of Natural Resources Steward.  What does this mean?    It means you will become a NH Natural Resources Steward recognized by the UNH Cooperative Extension and the NH Division of Forests & Lands, and in partnership with the US Forest Service, Great Bay Community College (which offers college credit for the course) as well as USDA, Natural Resources Conservation Service & County Conservation Districts.  This course will equip you with the means to do things such as serve as a liaison for local community natural resources projects, offer assistance to conservation commissions or planning boards, assist communities with natural resources inventories, etc.  There are also volunteer opportunities such as working on inner city community gardens, the NH Big Tree Program, Extension’s Speaking for Wildlife Program for adults, or the Wonders of Wildlife for children, and many other opportunities.  We also provide ongoing resources, continuing education, and peer discussions to support your natural resources endeavors.
