Windsor’s Conservation Commission consists of 9 regular members and 3 alternates appointed by the Town Council. The commission meets the last Tuesday of most months and all meetings are open to the public.
The commission is dedicated to preserving Windsor’s open space and conservation areas. The commission through forums and events shares information with the public on land preservation and environmental protection. Several areas such as open space preservation, agricultural land preservation, strategies to balance conservation and development, and environmental protection are major focuses of the commission.
Please feel free to contact us with questions and comments.
WHY CONSERVATION MATTERS:
Conservation affects our sense of place and the towns we want to live in and grow our families. On a broader scale, conservation involves the care and protection of resources, works to preserve open space, wildlife habitats, and woodlands. Because it affects our landscape, littering has become another area of outreach to encourage proper disposal of garbage.
How You Can Help:
- Stop littering. It’s a health issue and cleanup increases taxes.
- Rethink use of toxic chemicals which eventually reach our waterways and land surfaces.
- Properly dispose of garbage and plastics.
- Support local farms to curtail long distance transport.
- Commit to recycling.
- Protect wildlife habitats.
- Get involved in your local conservation commissions.
- Attend educational Windsor Conservation Commission Forums.
- Teach your children to respect and cherish the environment.
Members: Ann Beaudin (Chair), Nigel Pepin (Co-Chair) Colette Yeich (Secretary), Lea Chayes, Ayse Adams, Julie Henry, Tammy Young, Bradford Robinson, and Sherwin LeGendre.
