What Can Conservation Commissions Do To Protect
Natural Resources In A Changing Climate?

As NH's natural resources face challenges from the impact of climate change,
local action will be required to protect these valuable resources, both now and into the future.

UNH Cooperative Extension offers the following five suggestions:

1. Encourage landowners and the local community to preserve the beneficial functions of
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 mark projects.

4. Incorporate climate change into municipal documents, e.g. Natural Resource Inventory;
land 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
for prioritizing land conservation projects and conservation easements.
