Becoming Wolf: Eastern Coyotes in New Hampshire – January 25 at 6:30 p.m.
Myths surround the coyote and cloud our understanding of it. Originating as the smaller western coyote, our eastern coyote shares genes with the eastern wolf, the grey wolf and the western coyote. Its hybrid nature enables its resilience and adaptability to live in farms, forest, or city.
Christine Schadler has 40 years of wolf and coyote research and experience and believes “knowledge is power” – if you understand the coyote and are willing to coexist, she will tell us how, whether you garden, farm, or hike. She is New Hampshire’s wild canid expert and the Representative for Project Coyote, a national organization promoting coexistence with coyotes. She co-founded the NH Wildlife Coalition which advocates for better conservation of predators and is a member of the Northeast Wolf Recovery Alliance.
The Thomson Family Tree Farm – February 22 at 6:30 p.m. Join Tom Thomson to learn about how he became a Forest Landowner and walk through a lifetime of working on and sharing his Tree Farm.

He will also explain how he planted lupines to protect the soil from eroding. In 1977 the Thomson Family Tree Farm received both NH Tree Farm of the year and the Northeast Region award.
