Conservation Commission

MISSION STATEMENT

The mission of the Hampton Falls Conservation Commission is to preserve and protect the natural resources of the town including its watersheds, forests and wildlife habitats.  We serve to promote proper utilization of these resources through education, advising other boards on environmental issues, and maintaining a natural resources inventory.

What We Do

  • Recommend a program for the protection and use of the natural areas in the index.
  • Review and comment on Planning Board issues related to wetlands
  • Receive gifts of money and property in the name of the town.  Such gifts to be managed by the Conservation Commission.
  • May acquire, in the name of the town, land or water rights.
