WATERVILLE VALLEY — The Rey Center winter lecture series, entitled "Infatuated with Snow", finishes up on Friday March 14, at 7 p.m. with "Moose on the Edge" by New Hampshire Fish and Game biologist, Kristine Rines.
Rines will share the historical changes, life history, current status, management and research on New Hampshire's moose herd, which exists on the southern edge of the North American moose range. "Moose on the Edge" includes stories and discussions on how our changing climate is and may have already influenced New Hampshire's moose.
Kristine Rines is the moose biologist for the state of New Hampshire. A native of New Hampshire, she received her bachelor's degree in wildlife management from Michigan State University. After working for the state of Michigan, she returned home to New Hampshire, where, after working as an animal damage control agent for two years, she was hired as the state's first moose biologist in 1985. In 2006 Kris was named Distinguished Moose Biologist by the North American Moose Conference.
Kris developed and implemented the state's first moose season in 1988. She is responsible for moose management and research as well as being the regional biologist for the central region of the state.
