Do you have a fact sheet on a pertinent scientific matter of current concern? We would like to start a list of those topics for our members. Below are a few we have collected so far. Please send your factsheet in pdf format to firstname.lastname@example.org for inclusion in our list.
The New Hampshire Association of Natural Resource Scientists Legislative Committee has been active in the legislative review of 2015 HB 349 by the Resources, Recreation and Development Committee. HB 349 was conceived to implement the recommendations of the Land Use Commission (2010) as they relate to wetland buffers and the assessment of indirect impacts to wetlands. NHANRS offered to host a science based workgroup to accomplish this goal and has established the Wetland Buffer Scientific Workgroup.
Read more about this Workgroup and related documents at our new Wetland Buffer Scientific Workgroup Page.
The third NHANRS Coastal Wetlands Conference will be held at the Seacoast Science Center at Odiorne Point State Park, 570 Ocean Boulevard (Route 1A), Rye, NH, 03870 on October 16, 2015. Our working title is “The New England Coastline – Issues and Answers”.
Please see the Event page for information on submitting your research paper for presentation and/or being a sponsor at this event.
We hope to see you in Rye on October 16th!
There is a new vernal pool reporting form and instructions posted to the NH Fish and Game (and NHDES) website. The new reporting form will allow consistent entry into the NH Wildlife Sightings database and is consistent with the DES vernal pool rules.
There are also keys to identifying vernal pool inhabitants both in their aquatic forms (during breeding season) and for some, as remnants when the pool is dry.
Check these out on the NHDES Vernal Pool web page.
