Resources for Natural Resource Conservation

Jamestown is already a leader in natural resource conservation in many respects. For example, did you know that Jamestown has a Mandatory Recycling Rate of 43.6%?  Only eight municipalities in the state are doing better. Also, nearly 30% of the island's land area is permanently protected open space, recreation, or agriculture . . . and growing!
