The Conservation Commission, a seven-member volunteer board, was founded in 1966 "for the promotion and development of natural resources and for the protection of  watershed resources." Today, the Conservation Commission administers the Massachusetts Wetlands Protection Act and the Burlington Bylaws for wetland protection and stormwater management. Additionally, the Conservation Commission manages nearly three hundred acres of  Conservation land.
