Join New Hampshire Audubon and collaborators from UNH Cooperative Extension and the Xerces Society for a Webinar Panel Discussion on Creating Pollinator Habitat
Thursday, November 4: 7PM – 9PM
The panel discussion will share best practices around establishing pollinator habitat in New England. Discussion topics will include techniques for creating pollinator meadows, native plant selection, benefits to pollinators and invasives through the lens of insects. Presentations by the panelists will be followed by an open Q&A by the audience. Panelists include: Marc Nutter, NH Audubon; Alina Harris, Xerces Society; Emma Erler and Matt Tarr, UNH Extension Cooperative Extension.
This event is free and open to the public. Registration is requested. This project is being funded by the State Conservation Commission’s Moose Plate Grant Program.
(Free) Registration via Zoom
Saturday, November 20: 10AM – 12 Noon
As a follow up to the Webinar, an in-person walkthrough of the McLane Center project to learn more will occur on November 20 from 10am-12pm. We will gather at the McLane Center in Concord to view the progress of converting one acre of old field to a pollinator meadow. NH Audubon with the help of our collaborators are using a variety of techniques across one acre to better access what preparation methods work best at this scale. The field trip will allow participants to see and more fully discuss the details of field prep and seeding.
