Bat Conservation & Forestry for Northeast Foresters

Event Date: 
Friday, June 1, 2018 - 08:30 to 16:00

Due to threats like loss of habitat, white-nose syndrome, and human activities, all of New Hampshire’s eight bat species are currently listed as Endangered, Threatened, or as a Species of Special Concern. Foresters and other natural resource professionals can help to conserve and enhance bat habitat on managed lands. Many voluntary practices for bats overlap with conservation actions that benefit forest birds and protect water quality.

Attendees will learn about New Hampshire’s bat species and their ecology, review conservation practices that benefi t bats, and visit fi eld sites to discuss management techniques for bat- and bird-friendly forests. Participants should come dressed for the weather and prepared to spend the afternoon outside (rain or shine), with appropriate footwear and bug protection.

An additional evening session of bird mist netting is available from 4:00 - 6:00 p.m., with additional CFE credits. See the full event flyer for details.
