What's New?

We are now in mud season.  Please pay attention to trail closure signs during this time of year.  We will take them down as soon as we possibly can.  Please don't try to create a new trail or re-route trails to avoid the water or muddy conditions.  It is really better to just turn around and take a different trail.  Creating new ways to get through really creates more issues for our volunteers who keep the trails going all year long.  Thanks!

Have you heard about the NED Pipeline project?  It is proposed to go through 2 of our featured properties:  Horse Hill Nature Preserve and Gilmore Hill Memorial Forest.  If you want to know more, please watch our meetings or checkout the Town and NRPC websites.  You can also google "NED Pipeline" to find other websites.  It will change the landscape.  You Commission is concerned, actively engaged, and working to protect our properties. 

We are looking for new members of the Conservation Commission.  It is really a busy time right now with the different issues facing our properties.  We would love to have  a new face or two.  The commitment is simple and you don't have to have experience, just a desire to serve your Town and get involved with the Conservation's business.  See the Town Volunteer webpage for more details.  Thanks!  You will feel rewarded.
