The Greenfield Conservation Commission was established to protect the Town's water resources while also educating residents on the topics of water quality and wetland resource values. The Commission is responsible for wetlands permitting, accepting gifts of land and money for conservation purposes, acquiring grant money for town acquisition of open space, advising other Town boards on environmental concerns, and administering the Massachusetts Wetlands Protection Act and the Greenfield Wetlands Protection Ordinance.

Get Maps! (Please note that these maps are a great place to start, but cannot provide an official wetlands delineation on your property.)
