Habitat Stewardship Series

Do you recognize important wildlife habitat when you see it?

The New Hampshire Wildlife Action Plan: Habitat Stewardship Series brochures cover a variety of habitat types critical for wildlife species at risk in New Hampshire. They are designed to help landowners learn about and conserve important wildlife habitats found on their land. The first eight brochures, available for download below, focus on grasslands, marsh and shrub wetlands, floodplain forests, vernal pools, Appalachian oak-pine forests, lowland spruce-fir forests, peatlands and shrublands.

The colorful brochures include practical information for landowners. Pictures and text explain how to identify habitat types, describe the major threats to the health of those habitats, and offer information about wildlife species that depend on each habitat. The brochures also provide specific recommendations for landowners interested in helping protect and conserve the wildlife that depend on each critical habitat type.

The brochures were produced by UNH Cooperative Extension with support from the Sustainable Forestry Initiative and the N.H. Fish and Game Department. Landowners may download brochures below or at extension.unh.edu/FWT/HabBrochures.htm or receive a single set free through the UNH Forestry Information Center (call 1-800-444-8978, email forest.info@unh.edu). More brochures are under development for the Habitat Stewardship Series.
