Bath - 2012 Natural Resource Inventory (updated in 2016)

The Town of Bath, New Hampshire's Natural Resources Inventory, compiled and written by town volunteers and Conservation Commission members in 2012, serves as an inventory of the natural resources in Bath. It will provide a basis for land conservation planning in the future, and uses NH Wildlife Action Plan data and other wildlife information. Read the article about Bath's NRI published in NH Fish and Game's Wildlife Journal (Jan/Feb 2013). You can also learn about Bath's 2012 Eastern Brook Trout Study, which was completed as part of the headwater streams section in their NRI. Visit NH Fish and Game's website to learn more about other NH community efforts to assess their brook trout habitat.

June, 2015 update:  Bath presented the results of the brook trout study to the boards in town in June 2015.  They have scheduled a workshop to train volunteers to perform a  stream crossing survey so they can assess which stream crossings should be fixed to allow brook trout passage. Then they plant to apply for grant funding to repair these crossings to facilitate movement of aquatic organisms.

February, 2016 Update:  Bath updated their NRI in early 2016 to include new data and information from the 2015 Wildlife Action Plan.
