The commission is authorized by State of Vermont statute (Title 24, Chapter 118) and reports to the Londonderry Town Select Board.

Commission members are volunteers; the work of the commission is supported by an administrative assistant. Appointments to the commission are made by the Select Board, usually for a period of 4 years.

The commission advises the Select Board and Planning Commission concerning matters pertaining to conservation of natural resources in the town of Londonderry and undertakes projects on behalf of conservation.

Projects range from studies to actual ‘in the field’ programs. Examples of recent projects include mapping the town’s year round flowing streams, creating a database of water wells in the town, assisting owners of larger properties to learn about development rights and other methods that would prevent subdivision of their land, crop tree management of town wood lots.

The Commission meets at the Town Offices on the third Thursday of each month. The Commission can be reached through the Town Clerk or via email at conservation@londonderryvt.org
