Natural Resource Inventory

Summary Report


The NRI report was produced in cooperation with the Town of Weare Conservation Commission and Kane & Ingraham Conservation Consultants. This report was completed in April of 2011.

The authors would like to acknowledge the assistance and advice of a number of people who helped in the improvement of this study. They include members of the Weare Conservation Commission (WCC), former and current. Specifically, the following people were invaluable in their assistance, from the project’s inception to its completion: Andrea Alderman, John Ciampi, Michael Dahlberg, Andrew Fulton, George Malette, Patricia Myers, and Stephen Najjar.

This natural resource inventory project, including all report content and map design and production, was created by Christopher Kane and Peter Ingraham over the course of 2008 and 2009 (and completed in 2011 following WCC review) for the use of the Town of Weare, NH. No portion of this report or any maps may be reproduced in whole or in part without the express permission of the Town of Weare.

Assumptions And Limitations Of Project
The information contained in this report is based principally on stock geographic information systems (GIS) data publicly available from federal and state agencies. While the reader can expect these data to have a high level of spatial, temporal, and content accuracy, these data are meant for broad-scale planning purposes and have not been field verified in the town of Weare. This report and the accompanying maps can be considered a “coarse-filter” evaluation of Weare’s resources. Any land management or conservation activities initiated as a result of this planning effort should involve some level of “on the ground” evaluation to confirm the findings of this report at the site scale and identify features not mapped here.

Every reasonable effort has been made to maintain a high level of quality in developing this natural resource inventory report and the accompanying large-format maps (“The NRI”). However, the Town of Weare, Christopher Kane, and Peter Ingraham (“The Producers”) make no warranties, expressed or implied, concerning the accuracy, completeness, reliability, or suitability of the data described or displayed in The NRI. The Producers do not assume any liability associated with the use or misuse of this information. The information depicted in The NRI is for planning purposes only. It is not adequate for legal boundary definition, regulatory interpretation, or property conveyance purposes. In addition, the resources described and mapped in The NRI are subject to alteration by natural and human influences, and thus this project is a static representation of the natural resources in Weare, one that will benefit from periodic updates.
