Landscaping for Wildlife Part II - Field Visit in Roxbury, NH

   

WALPOLE, NH (June 18, 2018) - Take in the sun while exploring conservation in practice! The Cheshire County Conservation District along with Jeff Littleton, Principal Ecologist at Moosewood Ecological, present the second event in a two-part series on Landscaping for Wildlife. Join the District for this outdoor workshop on Thursday July 12, 2018 from 4:00-5:30pm.

 

The District's first workshop back in February explored landscaping for wildlife practices in theory, and here is your chance to see these practices in action on a 235 acre property in Roxbury, NH! Read about all the great conservation work taking place on this property in the CCCD's most recent blog post on their website! www.cheshireconservation.org/blog 

 

This workshop will demonstrate various techniques for landscaping for wildlife at Woodland Views in Roxbury, NH. Wildlife monitoring and habitat management has been a key component of land stewardship and conservation. We will discuss meadow restoration and development, monarch habitat creation, early successional habitats, orchard restoration, invasive species management, and strategic plantings that benefit a variety of wildlife, including birds, mammals, and pollinators. Emphasis will be placed on using native plants while taking in a lovely view of Mount Monadnock.
