Jed Merrow
Project manager
McFarland Johnson, Inc., in Concord, NH.
 
 
 
 
Jed talked about environmental analysis and permitting—a topic close to the heart for numerous development proposals within our fair city.
 
Jed grew up in the Connecticut River Valley in Connecticut and talked about his love of reptiles and other critters from an early age.
 
Currently he does the work needed to understand the environmental impact on animals in the path of construction...especially along riverbeds.
 
He shared information about rattlesnakes, spiney soft shell turtles, black bears, beavers, coyotes, bobcats, to name a few.

    We are pleased to announce the Fifth Annual Snowflake Golf Charity Open to benefit area families in need.
     
    What is the Snowflake Open?  It is a fun way to kick off the holiday merriment with our friends and colleagues, while raising money to support local families. Last year we raised $670 for our Listen Holiday Basket family, treating the three children to warm snow boots, snow pants, school clothes and a few toys, as well as a food certificate for mom and dad. We also sent $960 to the Haven to assist other local families during the holidays! Thank you everyone who supported and played with us last year!
     
    We are once again pledging to support a Listen Holiday Basket family so we hope you will join us for the fun!
