Summer 2019 New England Chapter News

The New England chapter mentoring program has grown almost 200% since the fall of 2018. Turkey season was the focus this spring, with pairings in every New England state. If you haven't emailed the chapter and are interested in being a mentor or mentee, please contact us to sign up for fishing or the fall season.

In April, NEBHA delivered comments to oppose the Central Maine Power proposal to construct 53 miles of new transmission corridor through the undeveloped forests of northwestern Maine, from the Canadian border to The Forks, as well as widening existing corridors south of The Forks. NEBHA opposed this project due to unmitigated impacts on wild brook trout habitat and permanent fragmentation of one of the most significant forest regions in North America.

BHA members joined with local conservation groups for a tree planting, stream-bank restoration project on the East Branch of the Passumpsic River in northeastern VT. On the last weekend of May, members got together to participate and volunteer at the Total Archery Challenge held in Killington, VT. In June, NEBHA hosted the Full Draw Film Festival in Pelham, NH and had a heck of a good time!
