The Conservation Commission is the official municipal agency charged with the responsibility for the proper utilization and protection of our town’s natural resources as defined in NH RSA 36-A. It is a seven-member board of appointed volunteers (with additional alternates). The Commission manages about 1400 acres of Town-owned conservation land, most notably the 900-acre Crotched Mt. Town Forest. The Commission applies for grants for land acquisition as well as a variety of conservation projects, monitors conservation easements held by the town, builds and maintains hiking trails, and organizes educational events, work days, clean-ups and Earth Week/Day observations.
