Natural resources and environmental resources are a key part the quality of life enjoyed by residents of any town. Creating and maintaining a Natural Resource Inventory of Branford is one of the responsibilities of the Conservation and Environment Commission. In 2002, Dr. Richard Orson, an environmental scientist and Branford resident, developed Branford's first Natural Resources Inventory for the Conservation & Environment Commission. The Inventory describes Branford's physical features, water resources, and biological communities, as well as patterns of land use, including open space and recreation, and sites and practices that pose environmental problems. The Inventory contains 17 maps and 13 lists or tables, providing Branford's citizens with a snapshot of their town's natural resources.
