About Us:

The Conservation Department works closely with the 7-member volunteer Conservation Commission who are appointed to staggered terms by the Board of Selectmen and charged with ensuring the long-term protection of the Town’s natural resources, agricultural & habitat fields and trails.

In addition to providing support for the Conservation Commission, the Conservation Department provides general guidance to individuals and/or their representatives in obtaining state and town permits from the Conservation Commission for work within a 100 feet or 200 feet distance of any Resource Area(s). 

The Department is also responsible for oversight and management of lands under the control of the Conservation Commission.
