Fall foliage, anyone? Join us for Tree I.D. walks in September and October! UNH Cooperative Extension, Hillsborough County

Join Mike Gagnon, Hillsborough County Extension Forester, and Matt Kelly, Cheshire County Extension Forester, for a Tree and Shrub Identification walk. You will learn how to identify numerous species of shrubs and trees using visual clues other than just leaves - clues such as shape, branching patterns, buds, bark, smell, taste, habitat, cones, and fruits. The ability to identify trees and shrubs by their bark, twigs and buds is a very useful skill for anyone who spends time in the woods. Along the way we can discuss forest ecology, tree disorders, wildlife habitat, invasive species, why leaves change color, or other questions that you have about New Hampshire’s forests.

Growing a Pollinator Garden

Pollinators play essential roles in the landscape; most flowering plants depend on pollinators for successful reproduction, including a third of our food plants. In this workshop you’ll learn all about pollinators and pollination, as well as how to create a pollinator-friendly flower garden that blooms from spring until fall.
