Guide to Conservation Land of Littleton, Massachusetts
The purpose of this guide is to inform Littleton residents of the various and unique properties available to them for walking, nature study, picnicking, and other forms of recreation in nature. Some of the Littleton conservation properties are well established and maintained. Others are new and being improved by volunteer Land Stewards who upgrade them and provide consistent maintenance. The Boy Scouts also offer their skills in the care of our public lands by constructing trails and footbridges.
Each of the lands described in this guide is administered by one of the following town organizations:
- Littleton Board of Selectmen (BOS) – The town’s elected, governing officials.
- Littleton Conservation Commission (LCC) – A town board whose members are appointed by the Board of Selectmen. The LCC administers the Wetlands Protection Act and acquires conservation land.
- Littleton Conservation Trust (LCT) – A private, nonprofit conservation organization that performs environmental, educational, and land stewardship activities. The LCT also owns conservation land for the benefit of the Town of Littleton.
