Camp Traditions, Winter Wildlife Sleepers, and Teens Take to Nature – It’s all in the Latest Issue of New Hampshire Wildlife Journal
CONCORD, N.H. – Stories told at hunting and fishing camp get better with the telling. The November-December 2009 issue of “New Hampshire Wildlife Journal” celebrates that tradition with a look at one family’s stories as deer camp transforms to snowmobile camp and then to a haven for fishing and bird hunting, all the while forging bonds between family and friends that last a lifetime and beyond.
Also in this issue, meet an inspiring group of teens who have hiked mountains, traversed ropes courses, tested their leadership styles and are now working on projects to help their home communities become more environmentally aware. The hope is that a new generation of “Natural Leaders” will set the pace for conserving New Hampshire’s natural resources.
Then, test your wildlife knowledge! Which seven mammals survive New Hampshire’s long cold winter months by sleeping them away? Extra credit question: Which of these are TRUE hibernators, while others go into a lighter sleep called “torpor” (they awaken from time to time). Find out in this issue in furbearer biologist Pat Tate’s Journal feature, “A Long Winter’s Nap.”
The Journal is the state’s only magazine dedicated to fish and wildlife conservation and recreation. In our regular columns, Naturalist’s Notebook showcases the northern cardinal. Find out how antlers grow in Wild Ways. Learn what biologists do to keep our large lakes teeming with landlocked salmon and monster lake trout, and why the New England cottontail rabbit needs your help. Get a peek at the new yurts at Milan Hill State Park. Enjoy the Kids Page and the true-to-life tales of Conservation Officers in Warden’s Watch.
