Conservation CommitteeThe Committee advises the Town Council regarding the use of the Town's over 1,000 acres of conservation land.
On July 31, 2018, the Town Council appointed nine new members to the Winterport Conservation Committee. The Committee advices the Town Council regarding the use of the Town’s over 1,000 acres of conservation land (which is spreading across several parcels throughout town), including Blueberry Hill Property. The Committee has been actively undertaking an inventory of Town conservation property and assessing what work, if any, may be needed on that property, including development of forest management plans and surveying of property boundaries. The Committee is also exploring existing recreational uses and the potential to construct and connect trails, including engaging with other organizations and Town committee has organized group walks (open to all) of Town conservation property, with more outings planned for the future.
