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.

The Natural Resources Team Final Report is currently unavailable.
