Understanding Priorities in the Squam Watershed


Management of the Squam Lakes Watershed: Understanding the priorities with a specific focus on trails and milfoil

During the Squam Lakes Association 2014 Annual Meeting, researchers at Plymouth State University’s Center for the Environment surveyed 40 meeting participants about use of the Squam Lakes and land in the surrounding watershed to better understand how they value some of the activities done by the SLA to maintain and enhance this special resource.

This survey, developed in partnership with staff at the SLA, was broken into several sections, including, Ecosystem Services, Trail Services, and Milfoil Management, and was administered in an interactive fashion with facilitators and resources available to help work through some of the challenging questions.
