The forested landscape of New Hampshire has changed through time, influenced by both natural and human-caused events. But today’s forests often lack the habitat diversity to meet the needs of many wildlife species. Join Matt Tarr and Steve Roberge of the UNH Cooperative Extension to learn about the fascinating history of our ever-changing forests and what you can do to create and restore important wildlife habitat on your property. We’ll also discuss programs that are available to assist with planning and implementation of habitat restoration projects on private lands.

6:30 to 9 p.m. at the Historical Society of Cheshire County in Keene. Following the talks by Steve Roberge (“New Hampshire’s Forests Through Time and the Disturbances that Shape Them”) and Matt Tarr (“Wildlife of Young Forests and Their Habitat Needs”), we’ll open the floor for a Q&A session with the speakers, as well as representatives from NHFG, the Monadnock Conservancy, and the Harris Center. Light refreshments will be served.

Seating is limited and reservations are recommended. Reserve your spot online here. For other questions, contact Tom Brightman of NHFG at (603) 271-5860 or by email.

Co-sponsored by NHFG, the Monadnock Conservancy, the Harris Center for Conservation Education, the Historical Society of Cheshire County, and UNH Cooperative Extension.
