North Woods Law series coming to the Rialto Theatre May 10

LANCASTER — If you’ve missed the hot new television series "North Woods Law," showcasing the work of N.H. Fish and Game, you can view it on the big screen.

The Rialto Theatre in Lancaster will be showing the series on Wednesday, May 10, as a fund-raiser for the department’s Operation Game Thief. Local stars of the show will be on hand.

"The series has been a big hit, and we’re excited to air footage on the big screen that features many of our local officers, biologists and community members. Guest appearances are also planned," said Fish and Game Lt. Wayne Saunders, who heads District I covering northern New Hampshire.

The "docu-series" airs on the network, Animal Planet, and features Fish and Game conservation officers and biologists working to protect and preserve the state’s natural resources. From managing wildlife, patrolling backcountry roads and trails during hunting season, and conducting search and rescue, the camera shows the officers responding to real life situations.

The showing at the Rialto starts at 7 p.m. It is a benefit for Operation Game Thief, a silent witness, anti-poaching program that encourages the public to report any suspicious activity or knowledge about a poaching violation.
