Management Plan

The Management Plan is the document that informs the work of LFSWS. Developed by the Wild & Scenic Study Committee with input from many experts, it was reviewed by the LFSWS Partner towns in its draft form. It describes the Wild & Scenic Committee’s organization and roles and offers descriptions of each of the “Outstandingly Remarkable Values” (ORVs), the regionally or nationally significant resources that made the river and brook eligible to be designated as Wild & Scenic. Significantly, the Plan gives protection priorities for each ORV, describes current protection measures already in place as well as known gaps in protection and presents actions, tools and strategies to achieve the protection priorities.
