The Conservation Commission cannot achieve its goals without the support of the citizens of Bow. We encourage everyone to make use of their time and talents to help us improve the natural environment. Here are some ways you can help…
- Become a Citizen Scientist – Many conservation groups provide tools to allow nature enthusiasts to collect important environmental data which can then be analyzed by professional scientists. Some examples are iNaturalist, NH BioBlitz , Volunteer Lake Assessment and River Assessment Programs, Weed Watchers, and one of the many community bird- watching programs sponsored by the NH Audubon Society.
- Join a town committee. The Bow Conservation Commission welcomes new members. Other groups like Bow Open Spaces work to maintain trails and steward protected lands in Bow and can always use new volunteers.
- Donate. New Hampshire state statutes allow for individuals to make contributions to towns that can be earmarked for conservation purposes. Examples are land donations with or without restrictions or monetary donations to the town conservation fund. Donating land or a conservation easement is a great way to make a permanent contribution to Bow’s environment.
