Go Wild About Habitats

Published: May 22, 2017

Our shared stewardship calendar is busy with events that focus on wildlife habitats in New Hampshire. Attend a workshop to learn about different ways land managers and landowners can manage fields and forests for wildlife. Check out a hands-on volunteer workday to get first hand experience with the stream habitats that can support trout. Check out the list of events to find the right fit for you. Signing-up on our calendar makes it easy to learn about and care for wildlife habitats!


Creating Habitat for Wildlife Species in Need

As our forests have grown and matured, young forest and shrubland habitats have declined and so has much of the wildlife that depend upon them. Learn about how forest openings can improve the diversity of our forests and create high quality habitats. Join us as we use mist nets to capture birds to learn about their habitat needs. Participants should bring binoculars for bird viewing.

Exploring NH's Unique Habitats

The statewide NH Wildlife Action Plan identifies 27 different habitats important to our state’s wildlife. Some of these are common, while others occur infrequently across the landscape. Join us as we visit a floodplain forest, pitch pine barrens, grasslands, and a spruce bog to learn about these special places and the wildlife that depends on them.
