EVENT: Fish and Game Information Session Set for Feb. 1
CONCORD, N.H. -- You might have heard that the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department is in a financial crisis. Come find out more about this situation -- and what it means for New Hampshire's economy and quality of life -- at an information session at N.H. Fish and Game, 11 Hazen Drive in Concord, from 5:00 to 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, February 1. You'll have a chance to:
- Get the latest on Fish and Game's current funding situation from Fish and Game Executive Director Lee Perry, who is working with the Governor and Legislature to find solutions to the funding shortfall.
- Meet Fish and Game staff members, and hear about the important fish, wildlife and habitat conservation work that is being done throughout the state -- work that is at risk if Fish and Game is not able to meet its budget needs.
- Find out what you can do to help ensure a sustainable future for one of the state's essential agencies.
Fish and Game's work is key to conserving wildlife and wild places in New Hampshire. The state's residents and natural resources depend on many services currently provided by Fish and Game, such as land conservation, reducing wildlife/human conflicts, wilderness search and rescue, fish stocking, OHRV safety and enforcement and many other programs.
