Natural Resource Inventory PresentationPosted May 10, 2019
Conservation Commissions are expected to conduct inventories periodically of town lands per RSA 36-A. A natural resource inventory consists of information on the natural landscape and some of its uses. Typical inventories include maps and a report summarizing findings and documenting sources and types of data such as topography, geology, soils, surface water and wetlands, biological diversity including wildlife. Rare species and natural communities.
An inventory can be used as a guide in setting priorities for land and easement acquisition. Are there, for example, two or more pieces of conservation areas that could be connected to improve wildlife habitat or opportunities for recreational or educational pursuits such as cross-country skiing or nature trails. An inventory is an important tool to use to identify and protect natural resources.
Residents are welcome to attend and ask questions.
