Resources for Communities and Conservation Groups

Many resources are available - maps, data and information - that can be used to write the wildlife section of your natural resources inventory, the natural resources chapter of the municipal master plan, a conservation or open space plan, and other town documents. Build local support for your efforts by providing education about wildlife. Conducting wildlife programs and using a variety of communication outlets will encourage community members to take an active role in taking action for wildlife.
