The Land Conservation Plan for New Hampshire’s Coastal Watersheds58 and The Land Conservation Plan for Maine’s Piscataqua Region Watersheds59 are two science-based regional conservation master plans developed by a range of municipal, regional, and technical partners to guide conservation efforts throughout the region. The plans identify 90 CFAs that have high conservation values associated with them (such as rare habitat for threatened or endangered species). Of the 166,212 acres that fall within these designated CFAs, a total of 51,062 acres, have been permanently protected (40.9% of progress towards the PREP goal of 124,659 acres). That represents an increase of 3.7% since 2011 or 5,197 new conserved acres, with the majority of these increases being in NH. There are a few notable areas where gains have been significant (over 50% increases since 2011), including the Winnicut River, Isinglass River, Kennard Hill and Birch Hill Lowlands. There are 16 CFAs where 50% or more of the acres have been protected (see Figure 18.1). CFAs where 70% or more have been protected include the Upper and Middle Winnicut, Creek Pond Marsh, Lower Lubberland Creek, Exeter River, Fabyan Phoint, and Laroche and Woodman Brooks. Continued, focused efforts are needed to meet the goal in protecting 75% of these CFAs by 2025.
