WALPOLE, N.H. — Beautiful Stonewall Farm, 242 Chesterfield Rd. Keene, NH, will host the 3rd annual gathering of Cheshire County Conservation Commissions this September 21st from 5:00-7:30 pm.
A potluck dinner for attendees will celebrate the region’s late summer harvest and showcase this unique collaboration of partners. The event is an opportunity for those who serve on their town’s conservation commissions to meet and learn more about each other’s work. Those not serving on an agriculture or conservation commission, but are still interested in their work, are also welcome to join in this event.
The evening will feature a discussion lead by Colin Lawson, New England Culvert Project Coordinator of Trout Unlimited, on evaluating culverts and stream crossing infrastructure in your community, and how to go about implementing a stream restoration program. Those in attendance are invited to join in good food and good conversation following Colin’s presentation, to discuss how to get started on a stream crossing assessment and set priorities for restoration goals in your town. This event is a collaboration of the NH Association of Conservation Commissions and the Cheshire County Conservation District.
RSVP is required in order to get an accurate head count. Attendees are asked to bring a dish to share for the evening’s potluck. NHACC and CCCD will also provide some locally sourced snacks. For more information on this event and to register visit the CCCD website at: www.cheshireconservation.org/
