Join MMRG and Branch Hill Farm for a Forest Habitat Walk on October 31st, 10:00am-1:00pm, with Charlie Moreno (NH Licensed Professional Forester) and Mariko Yamasaki (Research Wildlife Biologist, USDA Forest Service). We’ll walk through Branch Hill Farm in Milton, NH, and visit two very different forest habitats — a mature forest with century-old hemlock and pine, and a six-years-young forest patch of new growth.
Participants will learn about the essential value that these habitats offer to the invertebrates, birds, and mammals inhabiting them. We’ll also discuss habitat ecology, maintaining optimal ecological areas, and long-term management strategies. This will be a wonderful opportunity for landowners and the general public to learn more about the importance of forests to wildlife! More info here: https://mmrg.info/explore-forest-habitats/
This workshop is rain or shine and we will be requiring masks and practicing social distancing to keep the event safe and fun for all.
