In 1998, a group of organizations came together to create the Natural Resources Outreach Coalition (NROC). UNH Cooperative Extension provides leadership to NROC. The NROC Team includes natural resources and planning professionals and works with individual communities to provide the educational assistance and guidance necessary to help them work towards meeting their land use and natural resource protection goals. To date, NROC has worked with 25 communities in NH's coastal watershed. The NROC Team includes staff members from the following organizations:
- UNH Cooperative Extension
- NH Sea Grant Extension
- NH Coastal Program
- NH Department of Environmental Services Watershed Bureau
- Piscataqua Region Estuaries Partnership
- Great Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve

Additional Partners include:
