Climate Change & NH Birds – April 29

Program to focus on NH birds, climate change

WILMOT – The Wilmot Community Association (WCA) and the Wilmot Conservation Commission (WCC) will host “Effects of Climate Change on New Hampshire’s Birds” by Zoom at 7 p.m. Thursday, April 29.

Pam Hunt, avian conservation biologist for N.H. Audubon, will explore several topics including range shifts, declining food supplies and changes in migration patterns as they apply to the birds of New Hampshire.

“We are already seeing some of the effects of climate change in New Hampshire, with a trend toward warmer winters, more extreme weather, and drier summers,” Hunt said. “How will our birds – both breeding and migrant – be affected by these changes as they manifest over the next several decades? In most cases we don’t know the answers, but there is often enough information to allow some informed speculation.”

The WCC supports educational programs on conservation-related topics, builds and maintains trails for public use, plants trees on town-owned properties, and facilitates land protection projects. 

The WCA owns and operates the Red Barn, a community center, and Timmy Patten Park, a beach and playground. Founded in 1963, the organization promotes, organizes and provides facilities for educational, social and recreational activities in Wilmot.

The program is free. Mark your calendar today for this free and informative program.
