NH Fish & Game Wildlife Stewards present program at Prescott Farm on March 14th

What are wildlife resources? Who owns them? What is an endangered species? What is a species, for that matter?

The Eastern Box Turtle is one of New Hampshire’s endangered species. According to NH Fish & Game, statewide only 2 small populations have been identified and are currently being monitored.

These and many other questions will be the focus of a new program at Prescott Farm in Laconia on Saturday March 14th from 1-2:30 pm. The Wonders of Wildlife (WOW) program will be led by expert NH Fish & Game volunteer docent Richard LaFlamme.

WOW: Here Today: Gone Tomorrow? is an active, introductory education program designed for the most curious among us, with recommended ages ranging from eight to 12, though anyone with a thirst for knowledge is welcome. Some of the most fundamental wildlife conservation and naturalist concerns will be addressed – from understanding the distinctions between endangered species categories and criteria, to what humans can do to lessen their impact on those wildlife species most effected.

The cost to attend is $6 and free for Prescott Farm Members. For additional information or to register go to prescottfarm.org.
