The Upper Merrimack Monitoring Program and St. Paul's School are proud to co-host the presentation
"Drought in New Hampshire:
Yes, it is still happening"
with a panel of experts in affected sectors. The presentation is part of the Upper Merrimack Monitoring Program's Winter Community Program and SPS's Birckhead Science Lecture Series.
About the event
How dry we are—how wet will it be? Before the ground froze, New Hampshire was experiencing a significant drought. Although there has since been snow and rain—and even some flooded streams and rivers—groundwater levels are still very low. The evening will feature experts in the fields of fisheries science, municipal water supply, forestry, and hydrology. The presenters will provide an overview of the effects of drought in New Hampshire.
The evening will include a moderated discussion will questions and answers.
