Conservation Commission

Established: 7/11/63 by acceptance of Ch. 40, s 8c MGL, governed by Clauses 50 & 51, Section 5, Ch. 40.

Appointed By: The Select Board

The Carver Conservation Commission is a five-member volunteer town board. The Commission's job is to uphold the state Wetlands Protection Act (M.G.L. Chapter 131, Section 40) and the Carver Wetlands Protection ByLaw. For more information on our Commission and state and local wetland laws read the Understanding the Carver Wetlands Bylaw and Regulations online or pick up a brochure at our office.

Nearly fifty percent of Carver is wetlands; a large portion of that is cranberry bogs, a cultivated wetland. Much of the forested land surrounding the cranberry bogs is the upland that provides our town so much of its open space. Most of the open space in Carver is currently not permanently protected.

The Commission meets every first and third Wednesday of each month at 7:00 P.M. in Meeting Room 1 at the Carver Town Hall. Meetings are open to the public. The Conservation Agent is available to help you. If you have any questions concerning your land or a project on or near your property, or are unsure whether you need to file with us, please contact the Agent at the Commission Office.
