CONCORD — The New Hampshire Fish and Game agency is celebrating its 150-year history with a free talk and a photo exhibit at its Concord headquarters.

Author Jack Noonan, who has written two books on New Hampshire's historic fisheries and fishing tradition, will speak to participants at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 21. He is working on a book on the agency's history.

The department has also assembled a photography exhibit to commemorate its 150th anniversary, including photos dating back to the 1800s. The exhibit is open from 8:15 a.m. to 4:15 p.m. at Fish and Game's headquarters on Hazen Drive in Concord.

The Fish and Game agency was created by the legislature in 1865 in the face of diminishing — and in some cases disappearing — fish and wildlife in many parts of the state.
