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.
