Endangered Species Survey

The Commission will likely meet next on May 10, 2007. High on our priority will be completion of an endangered species survey that was included in our annual budget. The survey will be peformed by Mark West of West Environmental in Lee, New Hampshire, who some of you may know or remember from the prime wetlands study he completed for the Town.

Mark will be presenting his methods and approach for the study and will also be available to answer questions from the public. If you are interested in learning more about threatened and endangered species, or aware of any endangered species or habitats in Newington, please feel free to come to our meeting or drop us a note in our mailbox at the Town Hall.

The survey includes a review of existing records available at the State of New Hampshire's Natural Heritage Inventory, field verification and completion of a report. The survey including the report are expected to cost $6,850.
