Easton Conservation Commission

Hunting is permitted on all Town of Easton Conservation Lands, provided the hunter follows all Massachusets state hunting laws.  Hunting in Boarderland State Park and Natural Resources Trust (NRT) Sheep Pasture is strictly prohibited.  For non-hunters, beware that hunters may be present on any conservation land, so use caution when spending time on these lands.  Wear blaze orange to protect yourself and your family/pets from danger, especially during the shotgun and primitive firearms whitetail deer season.  For more information, on Massachusetts hunting laws and time period for hunting each type of wildlife in Easton, Town of Easton Hunting Guidelines

The Easton Conservation Commission voted on January 6, 2020 to modify the existing wetlands regulations Chapter 503 of the Easton Code book - specifically fees (C. 503-24) , maintenance of certain stormwater basins (503-7), term extenions (503-8), and vernal pool performance standards (503-13).


The Climate Change Assessment (MVP) Plan summarizes the findings of public workshops on how Easton can respond to natural hazards like flooding, changing seasonality, and extreme temperatures.

Conservation commissions were established in 1957 under Massachusetts General Law which gave the cities and towns the authority to promote, develop and protect natural resources, including wetlands. An integral part of the Easton’s Department of Planning & Economic Development, the Conservation Commission administers and enforces state laws and town bylaws affecting wetland resources. The Commission owns and manages over 3,000 acres of open space in Easton and works with individuals and groups concerned with natural resource protection.
