Gap Mountain Timber Harvest Tour
Saturday, 01/13/2018 (10:00 AM - 01:00 PM)

 

Join forestry professionals at Gap Mountain for a public tour of a working timber harvest and introduction the basics of conducting a well-planned, careful timber harvest operation.

 

The Forest Society will be conducting a timber harvest on a 50 acres portion of the 1,120 acre Gap Mountain Forest Reservation in Troy and Jaffrey. The harvest is located on the south side of Gap Mountain off Fern Hill Road. The area includes a portion of the Metacomet to Monadnock Trail. This harvest includes prescribed thinning, patch cuts and group selection to favor growth of oak, pine and mixed hardwoods along a network of skid trails radiating from a central landing. We will tour compartments within the harvest area, discuss goals and operating considerations. Learn which trees are marked to be cut and why. Learn from foresters. Meet the logger.  On the landing we’ll discuss regional wood markets, log pricing by tree species, grade and the wood products produced.

 

Directions and field trip-specific information will be provided to all registrants.

 

snow date: Saturday January 20

Location

  • Gap Mountain Forest Reservation, off Fern Hill Road, Jaffrey, NH,

Telling Your Story with Maps
Wednesday, 01/17/2018 (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.

Learn to use your mobile device (smartphone, tablet) to collect data in the field and make a map on your computer! Whether you want to use your smartphone to make maps for fun or for work, this workshop is for you. This class starts with a review of the most capable mapping apps available for iOS and Android.

Participants will learn to collect GPS data with a mobile device, make an online map with collected data, move map layers from their computer to their mobile device.

  • UNH - G18 Pettee Hall, 55 College Road, Durham, NH, 03824

Mobile Mapping for GIS Data Collection
Thursday, 01/18/2018 (01:00 PM - 04:00 PM)

Learn how to get a group of people (or just yourself) using mobile devices (smartphones, tablets) to collect GIS data in the field, complete the drop-down menus and online syncing!  This class will cover the use of two mobile data collection apps - Survey 123 and Collector - to plan and carry out field data collection projects using Esri's ArcGIS Online platform.  The workshop will begin by covering the basics of mobile data collection and will progress into the setup and hands-on use of both apps.  Each participant will learn how to configure each app for field data collection, and then use the apps to collect data in the field.

Community Training in Ecological Design, a Four Part Workshop Series
Wednesday, 01/24/2018 (08:30 AM - 05:30 PM)

 

ecological landscape design

 

This workshop series, Community Training in Ecological Design,  will present community planning solutions that use ecological design to integrate biodiversity, secure food production, sustainable water and energy systems, infrastructure, and economy. The result is homes, businesses, and communities that use less energy, create less waste, and recycle more resources. All participants will come away with tools to plan, design and develop a more resilient and sustainable future for their communities while working in harmony with the natural world.  Ideal for concerned citizens including those who serve on town boards and commissions.

 

CEUs and professional credits are available for AICP CM, AIA, NH Certified Professional.

LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) is a relatively new remote sensing technology that can capture precise (~1 meter) three dimensional measurements of the earth surface, including stonewalls and cellar holes. It has shown promise for a number of forestry applications including inventory and management. Most of New Hampshire (84%) has been mapped with LiDAR and the data is now publicly accessible. The presenters will discuss how to access and potentially use this data.
