Identifying Conservation Priorities in the Kearsarge/Sunapee Region

This portfolio represents an array of information concerning the twelve town region served by the Ausbon Sargent Land Preservation Trust (ASLPT). The purpose in collecting and analyzing this information was to create a reference tool for the ASLPT to develop regional conservation priorities for the region.

Within this portfolio there are six chapters that have been divided up into specific categories which relate to this project.

The Regional Investigation provides information pertaining to each of the individual towns in the region (Andover, Bradford, Danbury, Goshen, Grantham, Newbury, New London, Springfield, Sunapee, Sutton, Wilmot, and Warner).

The Co-Occurrence chapter offers our analysis of the conservation priorities we have found for the ASLPT region.

The final three chapters, Literature Reviews, Environmental Policy Overviews, and Newsletter and Media Pieces contain documents relevant to the region, with case studies, research, analyses, and recommendations for the ASLPT to use in the future. The ASLPT regional investigation portfolio can be utilized as a whole document, yet also has the capability of having pieces excerpted for specific references.
