The primary goal of the Natural Resources Outreach Coalition (NROC) program is to provide education and outreach to communities in the NH Coastal Watersheds that are dealing with the effects of growth, and looking for ways to conserve open spaces and natural resources. Program objectives to meet this goal include: 1. NROC and client communities determine natural resource concerns of the communities; 2. NROC and client communities gather community information about these concerns; 3. NROC develops and client communities host community presentations about natural resource-based planning; and 4. Communities receive follow up technical and educational assistance as requested. In 2004, NROC worked with three new client communities (Chester, East Kingston and Strafford) to achieve the objectives outlined above. All three communities received NROCs Dealing with Growth educational presentation, customized for each community, followed by a series of followup meetings in each community to address issues raised in the presentation and community concerns about growth and natural resources.
