VERNON CONSERVATION COMMISSION

Valley Falls

 
 

Welcome to the Vernon Conservation Commission

We're glad you stopped by to see what is going on in the town of Vernon. You might be asking yourself what is a Conservation Commission and what do they do?

A Conservation Commission is an official body of the municipality, created by vote of the local legislature, with its members appointed by the chief executive officer. The enabling legislation for the operation of Connecticut conservation commissions can be found in Chapter 97, Section 7-131a of the Connecticut General Statutes. Its duties and discretionary abilities stem from its purpose:"...the development, conservation, supervision and regulation of natural resources, including water resources within its territorial limits."

With the technical definition out of the way, we're a group of citizens who value our natural resources and are working to protect them for future generations to enjoy. We're all volunteers that live in Vernon and share a common interest in preserving and protecting our natural resources.
