070913 Speaking for Wildlife Program at Ashland School on July 10 (177)

ASHLAND — Do you wonder why you don't see Eastern meadowlarks anymore? Are you curious about the sighting of lynx tracks in northern New Hampshire several years ago? Would you recognize the call of the northern leopard frog if you heard it?
On Wednesday, July 10, Linda Brownson, a volunteer from the Speaking for Wildlife Program, will present "Wild History: 350 Years of New Hampshire Wildlife," from 6-7 p.m. at the Ashland Elementary School cafeteria.
The presentation, part of the Speaking for Wildlife Project, will take you on a virtual journey through New Hampshire's past, focusing on changes in the land and how wildlife populations have responded over time. Parricipants will learn why changes in habitat in the past are behind the decline of many of the rarest species today, and see what they can do to help.
This program is free and open to the public.
The Speaking for Wildlife Project is a volunteer effort of UNH Cooperative Extension, the NH Coverts Project and NH Fish & Game, with funding provided by the Wellborn Ecology Fund of the NH Charitable Foundation.
