Escape Outside: Fish and Game 15th anniversary


CHANCE OF SOME RAIN MONDAY INTO EARLY TUESDAY. THIS WEEKEND NEW HAMPSHIRE WILL MARK THE 150TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE AGENCY CREATED TO PROTECT OUR WILDLIFE. IN TONIGHT’S ESCAPE OUTSIDE, PAULA TRACEY JOINS US TO EXPLAIN HOW IT WORKS. HI, HALE LEE. NEW HAMPSHIRE USED TO HAVE UNREGULATED HUNTING AND FISHING BUT BY 1865 THEY NOTICED NUMBERS WERE DROPPING. THEY CREATED THE STATE’S FISH AND GAME DEPARTMENT WITH THE PURPOSE OF PROTECTING GRANITE STATE WILDLIFE. THEY SET LIMITS ON HUNTING, STARTED WORKING TO ENHANCE THE HABITAT, AND THIS YEAR NEW HAMPSHIRE WILL CELEBRATE THE 150TH ANNIVERSARY OF THESE KEEPERS OF THE WILD. THIS SATURDAY, THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE WILL GATHER IN CONCORD FOR THE FREE DISCOVER WILD NEW HAMPSHIRE DAY. SO WHAT CAN WE EXPECT? YOU’LL FIND MORE THAN 100 EXHIBITORS FROM ENVIRONMENTAL AND OUTDOOR ORGANIZATIONS, INCLUDING RECREATION AND HUNTING, AND A SPECIAL TENT THIS YEAR HONORING THE 150TH ANNIVERSARY. ALL VERY INTERESTING THINGS. FOR MORE DETAILS INCLUDING THE TIME AND LOCATION IN CONCORD, GO
