Natural Resources Mapping
The Natural Resource Inventory maps of New Hampton below are a result of several years of work. The Plymouth State University contracted with Dr. Rick Van de Poll of Ecosystem Management Consultants to do the work. Additional contributors were LRPC and GRANIT. Each map contains an explanation of the data sources used and the agencies and organizations from which the data was obtained. Wetlands maps were updated using recent aerial photos. A narrative to go with the maps, which explains the methods and findings, should be completed this summer.
The Conservation Commission meets the 2nd Monday of the month.

New Hampton Project to Protect More of the Lake Waukewan Watershed
The New Hampton Conservation Commission has signed an agreement to buy an 8.1 acre parcel on the west side of the Snake River off Waukewan Road, with 1480 feet of river frontage. The property, presently owned by Elizabeth Clingan Baird, contains wetlands and forested buffers that serve to filter the water entering Lake Waukewan. Meredith and the Waukewan Watershed Association are assisting the project. New Hampton, Center Harbor, and Meredith all have lake frontage.
A similar partnership in 2010 enabled the New Hampton Conservation Commission to purchase the abutting 8.5 acre Jacqueline Spear property on the river.
