Lane Memorial Library Hosts Speaking for Wildlife

 

Join a volunteer from the Speaking for Wildlife Program as they present:

Do you wonder why you don’t see Eastern meadowlarks anymore? Are you curious about the sighting of lynx tracks in northern New Hampshire several years ago? Would you recognize the call of the northern leopard frog if you heard it? The presentation, part of the Speaking for Wildlife Project, will take you on a virtual journey through New Hampshire’s past, focusing on changes in the land and how wildlife populations have responded over time. You’ll learn why changes in habitat in our past are behind the decline of many of our rarest species today, and what you can do to help. This program is free and open to the public.

HBugs: The Big Three informs New Hampshire citizens and visitors about three invasive insects of greatest concern to our trees and forests: emerald ash borer, hemlock woolly adelgid and Asian longhorned beetle. This presentation includes information about the life cycles, identifying signs and symptoms of infestations, and management techniques for each pest.

Bats have been in the news lately. Wondering what’s up with bats in New Hampshire? This talk will give you an overview of the different kinds of bats found in our state, where to look for them, and how landowners and homeowners can help conserve these fascinating mammals. You’ll also learn about the impact of white-nose syndrome on our bats in New Hampshire, what scientists are learning about this threat, and how you can help.
