Conservation Commission meets the fourth Monday of each month at Wallingford Town Hall at 6:30 p.m.
Green Up Day is Saturday, May 6. The Conservation Commission will be handing out litter bags at the transfer station and Rotary Club building.
Conservation Commissions are advisory bodies that exist in many towns across the state. Broadly, they were established to help communities protect and enhance their natural resources. In 1977, Vermont passed the enabling legislation (24 V.S.A. 4501) to establish municipal conservation commissions. By 1996, 96 Vermont towns had conservation commissions or similar committees. Today there are over 120 conservation commissions in Vermont.
The Wallingford Conservation Commission members built scenic walking trails at Stone Meadow Park off Waldo Lane and a kayak/canoe launch into Otter Creek off Waldo Lane. They created a kiosk with maps detailing trails and they even planted wildflowers that support a healthy bee population. For more news, follow us on our Facebook page by clicking here.
