New Hampshire’s Wild History is a program that takes one back in time—some 350 years—to see the changes that have taken place in land use and how wildlife populations have responded over time. In Springfield (NH), the town conservation commission, hosted by the Springfield Historical Society, will present the “wild history” tour on Thursday, January 14 at the Libbie Cass Memorial Library, 2750 Main Street, Springfield, at 7 p.m. The public is invited to attend and learn why changes in habitat in our past are behind the decline of many of our rarest species today, and why others are more abundant than in the past. The presentation is part of the NH Coverts Project, a wildlife volunteer program and the Speaking for Wildlife project, which is funded by the UNH Cooperative Extension Service, NH Fish and Game, and the Wellborn Ecology Fund of the NH Charitable Foundation.
