What Can Conservation Commissions Do To Protect
Resources In A Changing Climate?
As NH's natural resources face challenges from the impact of
local action will be required to protect these valuable
resources, both now and into the future.
UNH Cooperative Extension offers the
following five suggestions:
landowners and the local community to preserve the beneficial
natural features, such as wetlands, riparian
buffers, and upland areas providing flood storage.
2. Control invasive species on
town-owned properties and encourage landowners to do the same.
3. Communicate and build public
awareness about climate change via activities such as local
workshops and other events, demonstration projects, or high-water
4. Incorporate climate change into
municipal documents, e.g. Natural Resource Inventory;
conservation/open space plans, forest and farmland management plans;
Master Plan; Hazard Mitigation and Capital Improvement Plans.
5. Develop and add climate
vulnerability and adaption benefits to the criteria used
prioritizing land conservation projects and conservation easements.
