CONCORD, NH – With 2020 here, the New Hampshire Wildlife Journal begins the celebration of five decades of connecting Granite State residents and visitors with the outdoors through its publication. Throughout the year, the Journal will reexamine articles from fifty years ago, exploring resource and wildlife stories as they were written in late 1969 and 1970. Readers will be amazed at how much has changed, and how many issues remain unchanged after half a century—it’s a year of reading that’s not to be missed!

Also in this issue, readers will be treated to the New Hampshire Wildlife Journal’s very first photo gallery which showcases the state’s wildlife all through the seasons. With so many striking photos submitted by our contributing photographers, this was the perfect way to share their talents and the beauty of the Granite State’s wild resources.

Regular columns include On the Nature Trail, where in this installment we look at the significance of nature and outdoor time for children. What’s Wild explains the formation of ice pressure ridges on lakes and how they might affect your winter recreation plans. And, our popular Warden’s Watch column recounts the activities and adventures of Conservation Officers in the field.
