Come learn about one of NH’s most fascinating, and elusive creatures..the bobcat. New Hampshire’s bobcat population has rebounded since the wildcat was protected from hunting in 1989. UNH researchers estimate there are as many as 1,400 bobcats in the state.
A recent multi -year cooperative research study between UNH and NH Fish and Game was conducted to examine the distribution and abundance of bobcats in the state, identify what habitat features they rely upon, and to develop an understanding of how bobcats respond to expanding human populations.
This program will include information about the natural history of bobcats, habitat needs and the implications of research findings for future management.
This program is free and open to the public.
PINKHAM NOTCH NH – The Tuckerman Inferno adventure race started in 2000 as the annual fundraiser for the Friends of Tuckerman Ravine. The race pays homage to the original American Inferno ski races of the 1930’s. While the classic American Infernos were top to bottom ski races only, the current Tuckerman Inferno now includes running, kayaking, biking, hiking and skiing to create a pentathlon event that is one of the most challenging adventure races in the country. Individuals and relay teams of up to five people compete to see who will be the fastest to cover an approximately 36 mile course that starts in the Mount Washington Valley and finishes in Tuckerman Ravine. Individual champions are crowned Tuckerman and Tuckerwoman and there are terrific prizes for all categories of competitors.
NORTH CONWAY NH – The Hannes Schneider Meister Cup is unlike any ski race in history. It combines the best of skiing today with the warm nostalgia of yesterday. It honors the founding father of ski instruction, Austrian Hannes Schneider, who brought his world-renowned skills to North Conway and Mt. Cranmore in 1939. Schneider introduced skiing fun and excitement to millions around the globe.
Hannes Schneider was a mountain soldier himself in World War I, so it is fitting that the Schneider Race pay tribute to America’s mountain troops. Each year 10th Mountain Division veterans of World War II and the Color Guard and soldiers of the active duty 10th Mountain Division of Fort Drum, New York take part in this memorable event.
