Conservation Commissioners at NHACC Conference

February 04, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

Lynne Borofsky, a long time Chesterfield Conservation Commissioner, presented a workshop at the Annual Meeting of the New Hampshire Association of Conservation Commissions in November.  Entitled "Spreading Your Wings: A Primer on Expanding the Scope of Your Commissions Work", this well received presentation uses the long time experience of the Chesterfield Conservation Commission to illustrate how a commission's role in managing and protecting natural resources can be quite broadly interpreted. Its activities could include building hiking trails, running environmentally focused outdoor events, producing an inventory of the town's natural resources, partnering with other groups who have a specialized role (for example, The Spofford Lake Association, The Friends of Pisgah, the Friends of Chesterfield Gorge, the Monadnock Conservancy, etc.) and managing town lands (like town forests for example).  The conference was presided over by Chesterfield Commissioner Tom Duston, who was finishing his term as President of the NHACC.
