Wetland Buffers in New Castle

Beginning the summer of 2015, RCCD is working with the Town of New Castle, funded with a Piscataqua Region Environmental Planning Assessment Project Grant, to update the 2005 New Castle Wetlands Study. The two goals of the update are to make a case for the importance of Laveneger Creek for potential prime wetlands classification, and to look at the possibility of increasing wetland buffer protection. An outreach workshop was held in October with Dr. David Budick where 30 New Castle residents toured the Laveneger Creek salt marsh, learned about the critical plants and animals that live in that ecosystem, and what actions residents can take to help protect them.NC Prep 23-4
