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 works with individual communities to provide the education, assistance, and guidance necessary to help them work towards 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
- NH Coastal Program
- NH Department of Environmental Services Watershed Management Bureau
- Piscataqua Region Estuaries Partnership
- Great Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve
- UNH Stormwater Center
- Rockingham Planning Commission
- Strafford Regional Planning Commission
- Southern NH Planning Commission
Additional Partners include:
NH Coastal Adaptation Workgroup (CAW), a partnership of 22 organizations working collaboratively to assist communities in NH's coastal watershed to prepare for the impacts of extreme weather and long-term climate change by providing resources, facilitation, and guidance that enhance readiness and resilience. You can connect to the CAW newsletter, read the Crow's Nest blog for the latest news, and find information about upcoming and past workshops and events.
