About the Conservation Office

The Sudbury Conservation Commission was established in 1962 to protect local natural resources and features and to act as stewards of the town's conservation properties.

One of the Conservation Commission's most important responsibilities is protecting the ecological integrity of Sudbury's wetlands and the surrounding landscape. The Commission is responsible for implementing and enforcing the Massachusetts Wetlands Protection Act and the Sudbury Wetlands Administration Bylaw.

All of our meetings are open to the public and we encourage you to attend any and all meetings that might interest you.

The Conservation Commission manages the Town's eleven conservation lands for public enjoyment. These properties and the Sudbury River offer many opportunities for outdoor recreation.'

One of our major goals is to increase public awareness and appreciation of the many ways in which our local plants, wildlife, and natural landscape add to the quality of life in our community. As part of our educational effort the Conservation Commission leads public walks, speaks to elementary school science classes, and teaches field workshops for local scout groups.
