The Natural Resources of Chatham, NY

The Natural Resource Assessment helps the community understand agriculture’s impact on the environment by exploring issues related to water, species, and habitat.  It will also help educate about environmental processes that occur on farmland and how the community as a whole benefits from the clean air, water, and biodiversity that farmland provides.

 

For the past eight months, the Natural Resources Team has worked to gather data that helps us understand the impact of farming on our community. This information was presented at the November 2004 Community Agriculture Forum and their report is available here for download.

If you have Adobe Acrobat Reader, you can easily download these forms. If Acrobat Reader is installed correctly and configured as a plug-in to your browser, when you click on one of the links above it will open up the form in your Acrobat Reader program.

 

If Acrobat Reader doesn't open up when you click on the form link, then another window will come up with two options. If you choose "save to disk," make a note which directory you save the file ".pdf" in. You will then need to open up Adobe Acrobat Reader and open the ".pdf" file from the directory you saved it into. If you choose "open file," your computer will either know to open up Acrobat Reader automatically, or it will prompt you and ask which program it should open to view this document.

 

If you don't have Acrobat Reader, click on the gold box above to access Adobe's Web site, where you can download the free program according to their step-by-step instructions. You will only need to do this once, and you will be able to use Acrobat for reading future course schedules as well as many other documents on the Web.
