Coming Soon:  Dalton BioBlitz 2023!

Have you ever participated in a “BioBlitz”? Well, get ready, because the Dalton Conservation Commission is planning to hold one in Dalton during the upcoming 2023 spring growing season! We’re looking for teams of 2 to get out and find a natural place within the town borders (on public land, David Dana Forest, Forest Lake State Park Forest, your own land, or elsewhere, with the landowner’s permission) and record as many different species as they can find and catalog them! Stay tuned!

What is a BioBlitz How is it helpful to an ecosystem?

A BioBlitz is a biological survey that aims to record all the living species within a designated area. Groups of scientists, naturalists, Master Gardeners, and volunteers conduct an intensive field study and explore hands-on science over an entire day.

Have you ever been to the 301-acre David Dana Forest?

The 397-acre Forest Lake State Park Forest has a group of volunteers working on a trail system with NH Parks!…/forest-lake-state-park

Lots of great, natural wonders to explore, right here in our own backyard!
