Gilsum Wetlands & Wildlife

As authorized by NH State Law RSA 36-A, members volunteer their time to study and protect the natural resources of our town by:

  • Conducting research into local land and water areas;
  • Maintaining an index of all open space and natural, aesthetic, or ecological areas in town;
  • Maintaining an index of all marshlands, swamps, and other wetlands.

These resources allow the Commission to:

  • Develop long-term plans and strategies for the protection of Gilsum’s natural resources and Town properties;
  • Provide outreach and education on Gilsum’s natural resources, conservation goals, and conserved lands for residents, town committees, the Ashuelot River Local Advisory Committee, and the NH Department of Environmental Services.
