The Norwich Conservation Commission endeavors to preserve, monitor, and inventory the natural resources and heritage assets in town including wildlife, wetlands, waterways, natural plant communities, intact forest ecosystems, and scenic resources. We share our findings with fellow citizens, town commissions, and governing bodies to assist town planners, commissions, governing bodies and educate residents and visitors.


We meet on the third Tuesday each month. In accordance with Vermont's open meeting laws, minutes are posted on the Norwich town website. Members of the commission serve 4 year terms.
