The Ruffed Grouse Society, along with the USDA National Resources Conservation Service, New Hampshire Department of Fish and Game, New Hampshire Division of Forests & Lands, and University of New Hampshire (UNH) Cooperative Extension, are hosting a workshop entitled “Managing Habitat for Ruffed Grouse (Even if you don’t have aspen!)” on June 3, 2016 in Acworth, New Hampshire.

The workshop, primarily for professional foresters and wildlife biologists but also open to those interested in managing for ruffed grouse, will include a property tour and field discussion.
