Conservation Commission

Town of Lincoln Seal

The LLCT and Lincoln’s Conservation Commission work cooperatively to manage more than 2,000 acres of conservation land and 80 miles of trails. The Conservation Commission is a Town board appointed by Lincoln’s Board of Selectmen.

The Commission oversees the staff of the Town of Lincoln’s Conservation Department “to ensure the long-term protection of the Town’s natural resources and to establish environmental policy in conjunction with the Selectmen.” As stewardship partners, LLCT and the Conservation Commission provide baseline inventories of conserved land, monitoring and conservation planning, land management, wetlands protection, and public education and outreach. As an example, each spring when the garlic mustard plant blooms, LLCT and the Conservation Commission join forces for an annual pull as part of a town-wide invasive species management control effort.
