Conservation Commission

Bolton Conservation Commission

The Bolton Conservation Commission’s role is to promote stewardship of natural and cultural resources in our town and to advise the Select Board, Planning Commission, and Development Review Board on matters relating to the environment.  The members are appointed by the Select Board and while the current membership of the Conservation Commission consists of diverse backgrounds and some expertise in the fields of ecology and natural resources, we draw on professionals in the private and public realms to assist our efforts.

Conservation Commission Links and Maps are at the bottom of the page after the CC minutes.
