Litchfield Conservation Commission

Wild creatures, like men, must have a place to live.  As civilization creates cities, builds highways, and drains marshes, it takes away, little by little, the land that is suitable for wildlife.     – Rachel Carson

 

Litchfield is a great place to live, work and play.  As the town’s Conservation Commission, we are charged with promoting the sustainable use of our natural resources through sound principles, so that future generations may enjoy the benefits of our wildlife, water and the land conservation.  Our group is busy with walking trail maintenance, forestry projects, terrestrial invasive plant control and education.

Conservation Commission meetings are usually held at the Town Office, the second Wednesday of each month 6 pm. To confirm the date of a meeting, please check the calendar in the latest Sodalite.  The Conservation Commission was formed in April 2001, has 7 permanent members and can have up to 12 associate members.

The Conservation Committee regularly sponsors activities, events, and educational opportunities.   For events, check the monthly Sodalite for more information.
