LONDONDERRY — Leach Library will host veteran wildlife biologist Eric Orff Thursday, Jan. 10, at 7 p.m.
He discusses environmental issues currently impacting New Hampshire’s fish and wildlife.
Orff is a retired 31-year veteran with the N.H. Fish and Game Department.
During his time working for Fish and Game, he was the Region 3 regional wildlife biologist, as well as the black bear biologist for nearly two decades. An active lecturer and writer, since his retirement in 2007, Orff has been lecturing on behalf of the National Wildlife Foundation, educating the public on the impact of climate change on wildlife.
Orff contributes significantly to the Fish and Game Department’s monthly online “Wildlife Reports,” as well as the fall hunting reports.
He also maintains his own website with weekly “NH Nature Notes” at nhfishandwildlife.com. In this program, Orff will discuss the effects of climate change on New Hampshire’s fish and wildlife.
He suggests simple steps people can take in their own home, and looks at what is being done at the state and federal level to combat climate change. A former Londonderry resident, his presentation also looks at the changes he has observed in Londonderry’s Little Cohas Marsh over the past five decades.
This presentation is free and open to the public.
It will be held in the library’s lower-level meeting room. Light refreshments will be served.
