Potluck meeting with conservation theme

conservationWALPOLE, N.H. – Stonewall Farm, 242 Chesterfield Road, Keene, will host the third annual gathering of Cheshire County conservation commissions, Sept. 21, 5-7:30 p.m. This event is a collaboration of the N.H. Association of Conservation Commissions and the Cheshire County Conservation District.

The event is an opportunity for those who serve on their town’s conservation commissions to meet and learn more about each other’s work. Those not serving on an agriculture or conservation commission, but who are still interested in their work, are also welcome to join in this event.

The evening will feature a discussion led by Colin Lawson, New England Culvert Project coordinator for Trout Unlimited, on evaluating culverts and stream crossing infrastructure in your community, and how to go about implementing a stream restoration program. Those in attendance are invited to join in good food and good conversation following Colin’s presentation, to discuss how to get started on a stream crossing assessment and set priorities for restoration goals in your town.

A potluck dinner for attendees will celebrate the region’s late summer harvest.

Attendees are asked to bring a dish to share for the evening’s potluck. NHACC and CCCD will also provide some locally sourced snacks.

RSVP is required in order to get an accurate head count. For more information on this event and to register visit the CCCD website at: www.cheshireconservation.org/conservation-commission-potluck.
