What is the status of New Hampshire’s moose population? When is the best time to see a moose, and what do they do during these snowy winters?  Tin Mountain Conservation Center’s monthly EcoForum will feature Kristine Rines from NH Fish and Game exploring the state of the state’s moose population.  Join us on Thursday, January 13, from noon-1pm to learn more.  


Kristine Rines is a Wildlife Biologist with New Hampshire Fish and Game. Kris has a degree in Wildlife Management and had been NH Fish and Game’s Moose Project Leader since 1985. She is a native of not only New Hampshire, but of Carroll County and currently resides in Tamworth with her three Australian Shepherds and a cat named Grace who failed mousing 101.


In her presentation Kris will begin by covering the history of the moose population in the state and the animal’s life history. She will also discuss the state’s current management strategies and research efforts. Finally, Kris will address the need for public education with regards to moose populations and acceptable behavior when admiring these majestic creatures.  With moose serving as a major tourist attraction and symbol for our state, this is not a presentation to miss!   


The Eco-Forum lunchtime lecture series is sponsored by The Flatbread Company of North Conway and the Rock House Mountain Baker and is presented at noon on the second Thursday of each month at the Tin Mountain Nature Learning Center in Albany. The public is urged to attend to learn more about salient issues facing our natural environment and to hear the views of thought-provoking speakers.
