Conservation Commission

The mission of the Conservation Commission is to promote and develop the natural resources and protect and preserve natural areas within the Town of Bristol including its watersheds, streams, wooded areas, coastal areas, wetlands, and green spaces.  The Commission acts in an administrative or advisory capacity on environmentally sensitive project proposals, donations of private lands, green space plantings and a variety of environmental issues.

The Bristol Conservation Commission manages several open space properties for the Town of Bristol. Below is a map of the Perry Farm Open Space Property. This area is open to the public for passive recreation.

The Waypoyset Preserve Property off Narrows Road is owned and managed by the Waypoyset Preserve Trust. This area is open to the public for passive recreation. Below is a link to a brochure created by a local Eagle Scout containing property and trail information.
