Orford Natural Resources Inventory

Project Summary:

The Upper Valley Lake Sunapee Regional Planning Commission(UVLSRPC) worked with the Orford Conservation Commission to develop a Natural Resources Inventory.

The Natural Resources Inventory of Orford, NH, identifies and describes important resources within the Town through the creation of natural resources maps based on state data, local records and field checks, analysis of natural resource overlap, and development of recommendations for improved management and protection of important natural resources. A written report was created to document the results of mapping the  natural resources, analyzing the overlap or co-occurrence of natural resources, and considering recommendations for resource protection.

A number of natural resources maps were developed for this project, and UVLSRPC led a training session of how to use the digital maps and data.

Additional Information
