CONCORD, N.H. – Things were tough for a lot of wildlife back in 1979, when the state first passed the Endangered Species Conservation Act. At that time, no bald eagles lived in New Hampshire; today, we have 35 breeding pairs! Karner blue butterflies, once gone from the state, breed on the Concord Pine Barrens. American pine marten bound through the North Country. Much of this progress is thanks to the work of N.H. Fish and Game's Nongame and Endangered Wildlife Program, observing its 25th anniversary this year. The May-June 2013 issue of NH Wildlife Journal explores the evolution of this small program that's made a big impact on the future of wildlife diversity in the Granite State.

Also in this issue, did you know that New Hampshire has the world's longest universally accessiCble trail system in a mountainside environment?  The Crotched Mountain Foundation's Dutton Brook Trail in Greenfield, N.H., has this claim to fame. The Journal profiles this exciting initiative to create outdoor opportunities for people of all abilities.

Angling aficionados will love getting into the "White Perch State of Mind" in this issue. Plus, explore the future of moose in New Hampshire, learn about the great blue heron, and get a personal look back at the fall of the Old Man of the Mountain. Regular columns include the adventures of Fish and Game Conservation Officers in Warden's Watch.
