Managing New Hampshire’s Water for a More Resilient Environment

Each year, this popular event addresses current issues around our water resources and watersheds. Our watersheds are regularly exposed to a variety of disturbances, both of natural and human causes. Some disturbances are happening more frequently and often are of larger magnitude. The 2016 conference, on Friday, March 18, will focus on the concept of resiliency, or the ability of our natural watersheds and water systems, and built infrastructure, to respond to and recover from disturbances.
The event is at capacity, but if you would like to be added to the contact list, please complete our Contact Form.

State of the Loon – The trials and tribulations of a symbol of wilderness and indicator of environmental quality

Time: 4-5 p.m.
Location: Boyd Hall 001

The Common Loon is an iconic symbol of New Hampshire’s pristine lakes and ponds, and a valuable indicator of ecosystem health. The Loon Preservation Committee (LPC) was created because of concerns about dramatic declines in NH’s loon population.

Today, LPC houses the most comprehensive database of loon populations and productivity in the world, and its management has more than tripled New Hampshire’s loon population. However, loons remain a threatened species in the state and face many challenges, including lead fishing tackle, contaminants, climate change, and other anthropogenic stressors.

LPC recorded 5 consecutive years of declines in the number of loon chicks on NH lakes from 2004 to 2008, and significant population declines or mortality incidents on the state’s three largest lakes in the past ten years. In response to these issues, LPC has developed a recovery plan to restore a viable loon population throughout NH as a component of a healthy regional population and ecosystem. Presenter: Harry Vogel, Senior Biologist and Executive Director of the Loon Preservation Center.
