The Georgetown Conservation Commission is appointed by the Selectboard to provide leadership in the development, use and conservation of Georgetown’s natural resources.  These include:  flora and fauna;  woods and water.  The Commission keeps an inventory of the natural resources in the town, publishes educational and informational materials, sponsors relevant seminars and projects, and cares for and maintains town-owned open space  — currently the Ipcar and Round the Cove Preserves.

Past projects have included an assessment of the state of Georgetown’s acquifer and its implications for residential and commercial water needs, and development of the ‘Coastal Stewardship Guide’ to protecting wetland and marine resources.  Information on current projects can be found under the ‘Projects’ heading.  Some projects are initiated by the Conservation Commission; some by interested community members.  If you have a project to propose — let us know!
