The NE Cottontail in Litchfield: What's the Deal? Sept. 23rd @ 7PM


Don't miss this opportunity to find out why we are making room for the New England Cottontail and why it's population has dwindled.  

About the Program
Up until September 11, 2015, the New England Cottontail was being considered for federal protection under the Endangered Species Act. As recently as the 1960s, these rabbits were found throughout southern and central New Hampshire. Today only a few scattered populations occupy less than 25% of their historic range remaining only in the Seacoast and Merrimack Valley regions. Thanks to ongoing state and local conservation efforts, New Hampshire has the native cottontail poised to bounce back.

Haley Andreozzi from UNH Cooperative Extension will speak about the biology of New England cottontail, management techniques to enhance wildlife habitats, the conservation efforts underway to help restore this rare rabbit, and current state and federal habitat enhancement programs that offer technical and financial assistance to landowners.

This program is free and open to the public.
