New Hampshire has a rich history of supporting outdoor recreation on private land. The New Hampshire Timberland Owners Association, N.H. Tree Farm Program, and Quality Deer Management Association - First N.H. Chapter are sponsoring this discussion and informational session for landowners who allow outdoor recreation on their property.
The session will address concerns such as:
- As a forest landowner who allows recreation on your property, what is your liability if someone gets injured?
- What state laws and programs exist to protect you and what new legislative efforts are in the works?
- As a landowner, what can you do to mitigate your exposure to risk?
Panel participants include Glenn Normandeau, Executive Director, N.H. Fish and Game Department; Chris Gamache, Program Specialist, N.H. Trails Bureau; Simon Leeming, Attorney, Preti & Flaherty in Concord N.H.; Christopher Meier, Attorney, Cooper, Cargill and Chant in North Conway, N.H.
