DURHAM (AP) — Nearly $1 million in funding is going toward the protection and restoration of fish and wildlife habitat in New Hampshire.
The National Fish and Wildlife Foundation, in partnership with Eversource, the University of New Hampshire and the Connecticut River Watershed is announcing the funds Tuesday at UNH.
The projects are expected to restore eroded stream bank; provide fish access to miles of streams; improve young forest habitat; protect diverse habitat for fish and wildlife; and engage in hundreds of volunteers in conservation.
Projects are expected to help native brook trout; woodcock; cottontail; and warblers.
