The Environmental Protection Agency’s New England office recognized four UNH Cooperative Extension staff at its 2018 Environmental Merit Awards ceremony on Sept. 12. James Houle of the UNH Stormwater Center was one of the individual Merit Award recipients, while the UNH Center for Freshwater Biology, which includes Extension staff Robert Craycraft and Shane Bradt and Natural Resources program team leader Jeffrey Schloss, was one of two organizational recipients.
Making connections is the foundation of good science, and a new National Science Foundation grant-funded program will connect UNH Cooperative Extension volunteers with New Hampshire educators to improve Granite State science education.
Position is located in our Hillsborough County Office in Goffstown, NH
Under general supervision, with a focus on continuous improvement and customer service, this position will independently assist in a variety of moderately complex administrative matters. The responsibilities include providing office services related to electronic information flow, document preparation, data collection, maintenance, scheduling and customer service for the UNH Cooperative Extension Hillsborough County professionals.
From the hallway outside room 330 in the University of New Hampshire’s Memorial Union Building, two voices are clearly audible: one firm but frustrated, the other calm but antagonistic. Both are unyielding.
Once inside the room, the reason for the intense debate becomes clear: a group of New Hampshire residents are discussing a re-zoning plan that would allow for the development of affordable housing in their community. A facilitator stands at the center, working hard but struggling to keep the conversation on course.
Then a voice says, “Freeze.”
