The Rey Center winter lecture series, “Infatuated with Snow,” comes to a close on Friday, March 14, at 7:00 p.m. with the presentation, “Moose on the Edge” by New Hampshire Fish and Game biologist, Kristine Rines. Rines will share the historical changes, life history, current status, management and research on New Hampshire’s moose herd, which exists on the southern edge of the North American moose range. “Moose on the Edge” includes stories and discussions on how our changing climate is, and may have already, influenced New Hampshire’s moose population.
