The conservation commission may make an inventory and conduct studies of the municipal natural resources including air, surface waters, and ground waters and pollution thereof; soils and their capabilities; mineral and other earth resources; streams, lakes, ponds, wetlands and floodplains; unique or fragile biologic sites; scenic and recreational resources; plant and animal life; prime agricultural and forest land; and other open lands.
The Weathersfield Conservation Commission is currently working with our past and present Keeping Track volunteers on a new program to inventory wildlife in Town.
Our goal is to involve a larger number of citizens in the inventory process and to use a simpler protocol.
The purpose of the inventory is to locate important wildlife habitat, so that the Town can use this information in its planning.
We plan to collect information on mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, and also, perhaps, fish and insects, so that people with various interests can participate.
