Online Application for the 2018 Community Assistance Program

The Taking Action for Wildlife team offers direct technical assistance to towns interested in incorporating wildlife considerations into local conservation planning and actions.  There is no fee for this assistance. We can help your community:

  • Incorporate wildlife and habitat information in your town's natural resources inventory (NRI)
  • Identify priority habitat conservation areas

  • Integrate wildlife information into other existing town documents (e.g. master plan) & policies

  • Develop guidelines for managing town-owned lands in ways that support wildlife

  • Plan Landowner and public outreach and education

  • Access a wealth of wildlife information resources

Communities must be willing to commit portions of at least 2-3 of their regularly scheduled Conservation Commission meetings to working with Taking Action for Wildlife staff.  We usually need around 1-1.5 hours to review wildlfie information and facilitate discussion to help you move forward with your goals. 

Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis.  We prefer use of our online form (linked above) to apply for this program.  However you can also print a pdf of the application and submit it via mail or email to:
