April was a busy month for the NHFA. First up was Discover Wild NH Day. DWNH day is always well attended and in spite of on again/off again cloudy weather this year was no exception. From organizer Judy Silverberg at NHF&G, “Saturday was the best Discover Wild NH Day ever. There were over 6,000 people here enjoying the day and learning about all we do. It was a great team effort and we couldn’t have done it without your organization participating.” The next weekend, some of us assisted UNH Cooperative Extension with an ongoing New England Cottontail habitat restoration effort. 2,500 red and silky dogwood and American hazelnuts were planted by enthusiastic volunteers – NHFA folk were part of a big ‘many hands make light work’ crowd.
