This summer, our watershed mapping underwent great improvements due to up-to-date mapping resources and key stakeholders informing the mapping process. We accomplished this through the Delphi Process. We gathered key stakeholders for several educational workshops, after which they provided their opinions on the relative importance of key natural resources for the health of Newfound Lake and its tributaries. The collective results were used to create a resource co-occurrence map representative of priority areas in the watershed where several resources “co-occurred” in higher numbers.
