Free Talk on December 8 in Greenland, NH
GREENLAND, N.H. -- Are you concerned about the impacts of climate change on New Hampshire’s special environments and the natural resources you depend on and enjoy? From sleepless bears in winter to soon-to-be-threatened hemlock, maple and fir trees, our state is already feeling the impacts of a changing climate. Learn more at a free presentation on Tuesday, December 8, 2009, from 7:00 – 8:30 p.m., at the Great Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve’s Hugh Gregg Coastal Conservation Center, 89 Depot Road, Greenland, NH.
You’ll hear from three experts about how climate change is impacting New Hampshire’s fish and wildlife and their habitats. Steve Miller of the Great Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve and The Climate Project will discuss the impacts to the ocean and coastal environments. Eric Orff of the National Wildlife Federation explores how climate change has and will continue to change wildlife behavior and survival. Tom Lee of the University of New Hampshire will talk about changes to New Hampshire’s forests. Following the presentations, there will be a chance to join the discussion about these changes and what they mean for New Hampshire.
