Natural Resource Inventories
Can you help us figure out how to incorporate wildlife information into our Master Plan Update? What steps should we take to include wildlife in our Natural Resources Inventory? How can we educate our residents about the value of wildlife and habitats? The Taking Action for Wildlife team has been hard at work helping communities answer these questions and use data and maps from the updated 2015 Wildlife Action Plan. Since January, we have assisted 10 communities across New Hampshire.
When Campton decided to update their Natural Resources Inventory in 2014 - their previous NRI dated back to 2005 - they decided to work on it as a volunteer project, sharing the tasks among conservation commission members. They also had the assistance of a local volunteer with GIS skills to create the natural resources maps. View the Campton Natural Resources Inventory
The Bradford Conservation Commission used Taking Action for Wildlife assistance as a springboard to work on a Natural Resources Inventory completed in 2012, with a set of town maps created for the inventory.
Since 2007, the Effingham Conservation Commission has completed several studies of wildlife and wildlife habitats in town, using the 2005 Wildlife Action Plan as a key reference. View some of the other wildlife studies Effingha
