Fishing Quest, Trout in the Classroom, and Exceptional Ecosystems
All in the Latest Issue of New Hampshire Wildlife Journal
CONCORD, N.H. – Get on board for an hilarious ride as two fishing-obsessed Granite Staters embark on a quest to "Catch 'Em All." New Hampshire Wildlife Journal joins the piscatorial pair as they head out onto the ice at the start of a year-long journey in which they aim to catch and eat every legal fish species in New Hampshire – and learn a few of life's lessons along the way.
Also in the new issue (January/February 2012), catch the buzz of enthusiasm as New Hampshire students learn about science, water quality and conservation by raising trout in their classrooms and releasing them into local waterways. And explore the fascinating contrasts of New Hampshire's diverse natural communities, from old-growth forest to alpine tundra, in a photo spread adapted from a beautiful new book from the New Hampshire Natural Heritage Bureau.
The Journal is the state’s only magazine dedicated to fish and wildlife conservation and recreation. In this issue, you'll learn to listen for barred owls calling for mates in the winter woods, how small mammals create entire communities beneath the snow (which hopefully will arrive soon!), and where a slope known for a quarter-century as a "lost" ski mountain (Mittersill Ski Area) has been reestablished. In Warden's Watch, be entertained by the exploits of Fish and Game Conservation Officers as they rescue windswept anglers, apprehend speeding snowmobilers and generally "Take a Bite out of Crime."
