Program about local wildlife Thursday
The Jaffrey Conservation Commission is offering a program, “Birds, Bats & Butterflies,” at the Jaffrey Woman’s Club on Thursday at 7 p.m. at the Jaffrey Woman’s Club at 33 Main St.
Cheshire County University of New Hampshire Extension Agent Steve Roberge will present this free event.
Have you ever seen a mysterious hawk flying over your birdfeeder? A giant woodpecker that looks like he just stepped out of a cartoon? A bear? Come learn about these and the rest of the “Backyard Dozen,” a group of wildlife commonly found in New Hampshire. Attendees will learn how to recognize what’s in their own backyard and understand how animals use different habitats. Attendees will also get ideas on how to help wildlife survive and flourish in the neighborhood.
