Adapting Forested Watersheds to Climate Change Workshop
Tuesday, 04/04/2017 (08:30 AM - 05:00 PM)

Day 1

April 4th
PREPARING FOR CLIMATE CHANGE IN FORESTED WATERSHEDS


Natural resource managers face the tremendous challenge of developing and implementing management actions that help ecosystems respond to climate change. This session will:

* Outline adaptation concepts and strategies in the context of sustainable management of water resources in forested areas.

* Provide information on the current and anticipated effects of climate change on water resources in forested landscapes of the Northeast.

* Describe resources and tools that can be used to integrate climate change into the management of forest water resources.

* Identify actions that enhance the ability of forested watersheds and other ecosystems to adapt to changing conditions. Real-world examples of climate adaptation projects that work to meet landowner
   goals will be featured, and participants will engage in a variety of interactive activities to identify climate change issues and potential adaptation actions.

 

Real-world examples of climate adaptation projects that work to meet landowner goals will be featured, and participants will engage in a variety of interactive activities to identify climate change issues and potential adaptation actions.

 

Day 2

FOREST-WATER ADAPTATION PLANNING & PRACTICES


The second day of the workshop will focus on the testing and continued development of a set of adaptation strategies and approaches for managing water resources in rural, forested landscapes. During this active, hands-on session, participants will use the Adaptation Workbook to consider climate change impacts and identify adaptation options in real-world management situations. Feedback from Day 2 will directly inform the continued development of the new Forests and Water Strategies and Approaches menu.

Woodcock Walk & Talk
Saturday, 04/08/2017 (04:00 PM - 07:00 PM)

 

The American Woodcock is considered a species in greatest need of conservation in the New Hampshire Wildlife Action Plan. The "singing fields" and brushy 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 us to tour the Slade Brook Easement and the Huntington Hill Management Area with Jim Frohn, Grafton County Forester, and John Lanier of the Northeast Woodcock Initiative. Stay for refreshments, and at twilight see the aerial courtship display of this amazing migratory bird. The Slade Brook Easement was preserved with funding from Jim Kennedy, the Hanover Conservancy (formerly Hanover Conservation Council), and the New Hampshire Fish & Game Department.

 

Registration is requested, but not required. Register on line or call Jim Kennedy at 603-643-6446

WPS "Train the Trainer" Workshop

UNH School of Law, 2 White St, Concord, NH

Pesticide license recertification credits: to be announced

 

 

Registration & Fees: $50 (includes lunch) Register here!

 

Last Day to Register: April 16th 2017.

 

Description: Under the new requirements of the federal Worker Protection Standard (WPS), farm workers and pesticide handlers must receive annual mandatory pesticide safety training from a qualified trainer before they begin work. In New Hampshire (NH), a qualified pesticide safety trainer means a certified pesticide applicator who has been designated by the division, pursuant to Pes 1103.04, as being knowledgeable in the “Worker Protection Standard” and competent to train workers and handlers in safe working practices involving pesticides. Attending this Train-The-Trainer course for agricultural workers and pesticide handlers will meet NH’s standard of training for the train the trainer course, which is a higher standard than that of EPA’s. This training will also provide an update for those who are already considered WPS trainers in New Hampshire.  Information presented will focus on the expanded training requirements of the WPS, which includes information about pesticide residues, the potential health effects of pesticide exposure, and how to avoid bringing pesticide residues home. Participants will be provided access to additional training materials that have been EPA approved for training workers and handlers.

Who should attend? Those individuals who already have a WPS Certification on their license (Commercial and or Private applicators), individuals who would like a refresher on WPS and those individuals who might be considering testing to become either a Private or Commercial Applicator in a WPS related category.
