Conservation Commission members & the general public are invited to join the Cheshire County Conservation District and the NH Association of Conservation Commissions at their 5th Annual Conservation Commission Potluck at Stonewall Farm.
This year’s topic and speakers will focus on trail building and wildlife…
Siting Recreational Trails with Wildlife in Mind
This program will focus on a new tool to help locate wildlife. Funded by the US Fish and Wildlife Service, the NH Fish & Game Department has developed a statewide tool that can be used to locate new trails in a way that minimizes impacts to wildlife and also minimizes the need for ongoing maintenance. Additionally, it can be used to assess existing trails for potential impact on wildlife and to identify locations for on-the-ground best management practices that minimize trail maintenance, such as the installation of correctly sized culverts, the building of water bars etc.
Speakers include: Rachel Stevens, Wildlife Ecologist, NH Fish & Game Department & Jim Oehler, State Lands Habitat Biologist, NH Fish & Game Department
