Nash Stream Forest Citizen’s Committee

Purpose and Scope

The role of the Nash Stream Citizens Committee is to work in partnership with the US Forest Service (easement holder), Division of Forests and Lands and other state agencies to serve as a focused source of public input to improve the information base influencing management decisions relative to the Nash Stream Forest.

This mission is achieved in part by:

  • review and comment on work plans;

  • assist with ongoing management plan monitoring efforts;

  • facilitate dialog between diverse interests and help resolve conflicts with resource decision making;

  • promote communication and understanding of management issues;

The Nash Stream Forest Citizen Advisory Committee was initially created in 1996 as called for in the Nash Stream Management Plan. In 2004 the New Hampshire state legislature passed House Bill 1138 establishing the Nash Stream Forest Citizens Committee in statute (RSA Section 12-A:9-c).
