UPDATE:
Due to the Covid-19 virus and with an abundance of caution, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the annual forthcoming Cottrell-Baldwin Environmental Lecture Series at Fox Research
& Demonstration Forest that was scheduled to begin on Tuesday, March 17th and run through Tuesday, April 7th.  We do look forward to re-scheduling the programs at a later date as more information becomes available. This popular annual lecture series co-sponsored by the Society for the Protection of NH Forests.
