  • 3 people are interested

Applications are now being accepted for the University of New Hampshire Cooperative Extension’s hands-on program for people who enjoy being outdoors, value nature and want to become stewards of New Hampshire’s forests, wildlife, and water resources.

Participants will gain a comprehensive understanding of natural resources stewardship by learning about tree identification, planting, and care; forest types and the wildlife that lives within them; permaculture; ecological landscaping; land conservation and protection; wetlands; invasive species; volunteer roles and opportunities in NH communities, and many more topics essential to the well-being of the state’s natural resources.

In exchange for receiving college-level education, participants are asked to complete 40 hours of volunteer service within two years in their own communities or through a partnering agency’s program in a variety of conservation projects.

"The program is open to all," said Mary Tebo Davis, natural resources field specialist at UNH Cooperative Extension. "It is especially helpful for those volunteering on conservation commissions, tree committees, or watershed associations, and for those who maybe aren’t sure yet how they can help but want to make a difference."
