connect to protect logo

The purpose of this document is to summarize how work related to the NERRS Science Collaborative funded project “Connect to Protect: Transferring Conservation Science in New Hampshire's Coastal Watershed” can continue or be leveraged to advance coastal land protection in New Hampshire and Maine. This sustainability plan was created by and for project team members to evaluate science transfer activities that should continue, prioritize next steps, and consider ways the work can continue with and without additional funding. Though the plan is specific to the context of this project team, the document provides a clear example of how a structured process can help teams clarify their accomplishments, lessons learned, and next steps for various elements of a project.
