Washington - 2008 Natural Resource Inventory

In 2005 the Town of Washington Planning Board in consultation and cooperation with the Town of Washington Conservation Commission identified the need for a Natural and Cultural Resource Inventory and a Conservation Plan for Washington. Concerns about growth and the informed use of natural and cultural resources, both from the boards and from the public in general underscored the need for such a document.  Wildlife Action Plan information was incorporated into both the NRI and the Conservation Plan, and is being used by Washington in their ongoing land conservation and conservation planning work. The conservation plan states that: “The entire Town was mapped as being significant on a state-wide or state-regional basis by the 2005 NH Fish and Game Wildlife Action Plan, an exceptional finding. The Conservation Plan makes extensive reference to the NH Wildlife Action Plan.”
