In 2007, Effingham successfully applied for a Moose Plate grant to assess wildlife habitat by field checking information in the NH Wildlife Action Plan and to refining this information at the local level:
- Where does the best wetland and upland wildlife habitat occur in Effingham?
- How many Wildlife Action Plan species of concern occur in Effingham and where do they occur?
- Based on habitat and species observations, where should the Town focus its wildlife habitat conservation efforts?
Details about this study are on the Effingham Conservation Commission’s web page (scroll down to the bottom of the page to find the wildlife action plan report). View the maps that accompany the report.
