A program on Bobcats in New Hampshire will be presented by NH Fish and Game wildlife biologist Patrick Tate on Friday, April 13 at 7:00 at the Walpole Town Hall. Mr. Tate holds a BS and MS in wildlife ecology. He will be presenting information about bobcats in the state, including their natural history, habitat use, past research efforts and continued monitoring projects. There will be time for questions from the audience. The program is appropriate for adults and school age children. There is no charge for admission, however donations are welcomed.
This program is being held by the Friends of the Hooper Institute as a benefit for the Hooper Institute’s High School Summer Work Program. Over the past two decades Walpole teens have been placed at a variety of businesses related to agriculture and the environment. Students have a choice to work with animals: dairy and beef cows, horses, sheep and goats and poultry; or plants: a vineyard, apple orchard, berry farm or landscaping. Students can serve as camp counselors for Hooper summer camps. The average cost of the summer program is $15,000.
Doors will open at 6:30 PM. Come early to bid on many raffle items. These include services such as diagnostic records from Dr. Emily Samuelson, Orthodontist. Some Items include gift cards, subscriptions to NH Fish and Game Wildlife Journal magazine, a hand crafted cutting board and bird houses, plus a beautiful piece of art glass by Chris Sherwin. We hope you can join us for a fun and informative evening. Please support this award winning program for Walpole teens.
