Stonyfield 5K race to benefit New England cottontail restoration

Participants in Stonyfield Farm's 5K walk/run and free Earth Day Fair on Saturday, April 20, 2013, in Londonderry, N.H., will help bring a native rabbit back to the state. A portion of the proceeds from the event will be donated to the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department’s Nongame and Endangered Wildlife Program for work restoring the New England cottontail. The Nongame Program and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s New England Field Office encourage the public to come to the Earth Day Fair and visit the New England cottontail booth to participate in fun activities and learn important information about the conservation effort.
