UPDATE AS OF MARCH 24TH
As the COVID-19 virus continues to disrupt our daily lives, we hope that these resources can provide some much needed information and help and perhaps some virtual entertainment options. Please continue to check back for updates.
Conservation Land Guidelines
While we are all physically distancing to prevent the spread of coronavirus, we will have more time for each other and the outdoors. Getting outside can help boost you and your family’s resilience, too. Remember also that wildlife always need distancing from humans in order to carry out their normal life functions.
Our town conservation areas are currently open to provide much needed solace. We need you to help make sure that all visitors can experience a sense of calm and stress relief. And since the health, safety, and well-being of our visitors is our top priority, we have placed the following restrictions on the use of town conservation lands, based upon Governor Baker’s Emergency Order and the Department of Health’s and CDC’s guidance.
