Conservation Commission

The Lebanon Conservation Commission is a volunteer board set up to inventory open spaces, wetlands, wildlife areas, and Town owned lands and make recommendations as to how they may be conserved and protected for future generations. We develop management plans for Town owned property which may include recreation, wildlife habitat protection, forest management, and preservation of wetlands. With the help of Boy Scouts and other volunteers we conduct cleanups, develop trails, and improve access to protected lands. 

The fun part is being able to walk to Town properties and the feeling of accomplishment knowing that the properties will remain open for the public to enjoy.

Completed open space projects to date include:

Nesbitt Pond Access on Milton Mills Road. Fishing and canoe access along a dock on the pond.

Lebanon Community Forest on Hebo-Hybo Road. Opportunities for hiking and other access, hunting, and forest management. 

Gully Oven on Gully Oven Road. Wayside trail to a unique geologic and historic site.

The Conservation Commission meets the last Thursday of each month. Meetings begin at 6:30 pm and are held in the Martha Sawyer Community Library, which is located within the Hanson Elementary School, 53 Upper Guinea Road. Property walks and cleanups are scheduled on an as needed basis.

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED: In addition to voting commission members we have openings for associates members and volunteers who may just want to go on property walks or help with projects.
