This updated CD version
 for the Madbury Sugar Maples 4-H Club is in partial fulfillment of a Coverts Cooperator’s responsibilities.

The New Hampshire Coverts Project trains volunteers to promote wildlife habitat conservation and forest stewardship. The goals of the project are twofold:

  • To enhance, restore, and conserve habitat for the rich diversity
  • To increase the amount of New Hampshire's public and private land managed with a stewardship ethic

A "covert" (pronounced "cover" with a "t") is a thicket that provides shelter for wild animals. Modeled on similar Coverts Projects in other states, the name of the NH program symbolizes the Project's focus on wildlife habitat.

The NH Coverts project is sponsored by: UNH Cooperative Extension, New Hampshire Fish and Game, New Hampshire Division of Forests and Lands, the Ruffed Grouse Society, USDA Forest Service State and Private Forestry and the US Fish & Wildlife Service.
