About Office of Woodlands and Natural Areas

In October 1981 the President of the University of New Hampshire (then President Handler) authorized Kurt C. Feltner, the Dean of the College of Life Sciences and Agriculture to appoint a University Woodlands Committee. This committee merged with the Natural Areas Committee. The Natural Areas Committee was established to ensure usage of the Natural Areas was consistent with Natural Area status. These two committees combined are the predecessors to the Woodlands and Natural Areas Committee of today.
