Need a Wildlife Talk?
Call on the Fish and Wildlife Stewards!
CONCORD, N.H. -- Does your organization or community group need a speaker on a wildlife topic? Thanks to the support of a federal grant, volunteer Fish and Wildlife Stewards are now available to present free wildlife-related programs to adult groups statewide. These wildlife enthusiasts have been trained by the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department to present public programs to clubs, libraries, conservation groups or any interested organization.
Currently, groups can choose from two presentations: "Black Bear Happenings in New Hampshire" and "Understanding Bobcats in New Hampshire." Another talk about trout habitat in New Hampshire is in the works and will be available in late spring.
Each presentation explores the natural history of our native wildlife, related research and management activities, and the Wildlife and Sport Fish Restoration Program that makes the work possible. Presentations last about 30-45 minutes.
To request a program for your adult organization or group, complete the program request form available at www.wildnh.com/fwstewards and mail to: Fish and Wildlife Stewards Program, N.H. Fish and Game, 11 Hazen Drive, Concord, NH 03301; or email as an attachment to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Wildlife Stewards Program was created to help increase public awareness of the federal Sport Fish and Wildlife Restoration programs and the important Fish and Game projects they fund. Now in its 75th year, theSport Fish and Wildlife Restoration program is funded by your purchase of fishing tackle, firearms, ammunition and motorboat fuels.
