Volunteers sought for conserving NH wildlife, forest stewardship – NH1 News
CONCORD (AP) — New Hampshire is looking for conservation-minded individuals to serve as stewards of the state’s wildlife and forest resources.
The New Hampshire Coverts Project is aimed at enhancing, restoring and conserving habitat for the native wildlife. It takes its name from the word covert — a thicket that provides shelter for wildlife.
Each year, 25 volunteers attend several days of workshops to learn about wildlife and forest ecology, habitat management, land conservation and effective outreach. They then commit to at least 40 hours of volunteer work in the coming year.
Some lead field walks or organize volunteer work days. Others serve on town boards or manage their own property for wildlife habitat. Applications are due March 1 and are available online at nhcoverts.org.
