CONCORD — In the newest issue of New Hampshire Wildlife Journal magazine (September/October 2019) we join Heidi Holman, Wildlife Diversity Biologist at the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department, on her search for clues to unravel the mystery of the White Mountain fritillary. A species of butterfly only documented in the higher elevations of Mount Washington, this unique insect mysteriously thrives in one of the harshest environments on the planet.
For those who are passionate about wildlife conservation, fascinated by forest stewardship, and excited to share their knowledge with both private landowners and communities, Lindsay Webb introduces readers to the NH Coverts Project which trains volunteers to help sustain habitat for birds and animals. Each May the curriculum is introduced to 25 people over four days who emerge from the program as Coverts Cooperators, prepared to teach anyone how to create a “shelter for wildlife’ through effective land stewardship.
Also in this issue, experience the view from a tree stand where you may find your perspective elevated on many levels. Andy Schafermeyer takes us up in the air where we learn about the advantages of hunting from a tree stand, explore the types of stands that might be right for you, and highlight safety while enhancing your hunting experience.
In the “On the Nature Trail” column, discover the differences between crows and ravens and learn how to differentiate between these two intelligent corvids. Just in time for leaf-peeping conversations, “What’s Wild” explains the process that causes the Granite State’s leaves to transform from lush greens to vivid hues each fall.
