September 2016: The Windham Forestry Committee is actively managing the properties now known as the McIlvaine Town Forest, in accordance with NH RSA 31:111.
One of the goals of our 10 year Forest Stewardship Plan is to support a multiple use concept in the forest. This includes recreational opportunities, wildlife habitat, conservation of soil and water resources, and sustainable long-term timber management. In doing this, we could use the public’s help.
Hunters, hikers, and other forest enthusiasts can help us monitor the local wildlife by emailing their observations to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Interesting wildlife encounters or evidence, including photos if possible, are appreciated. Together we can work to keep our town forest environment as a great place for both wildlife and recreation. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
