Conservation Commission Projects

The Putney Conservation Commission oversees and maintains the town's conservation sites, including the Sacketts Brook Conservation Site, the Beatrice Aiken Wildlife Preserve, and the Roger Parrott (formerly Bare Hill) Conservation Site.

Members of the Commission can often be seen weeding, mulching, and dead-heading in the "triangle garden" on Route 5 across from the co-op. The garden was designed by Tim Ragle and has been maintained by Commission members and volunteers throughout the community.

In addition to maintaining town conservation sites and working on beautification projects, the Commission has been working during the past year on Ancient Roads designations (NY Times, April 2008), National Grid's plan to replace utility poles throughout Putney, the informational kiosk at the town's recycling center, the town plan, and much more.
