The Plainfield Conservation Commission is a town organization dedicated to preserving the environment, culture, and rural character of our town for the present and future generations of Plainfield.

Since 1994, the Conservation Commission has been giving back to the community through land conservation programs, providing projects to local scout groups and alternative corrections workers, creating parks for the people of Plainfield, and has handed out thousands of free tree seedlings to help enhance the beauty and habitat of Plainfield.

The Conservation Commission also takes part in regional meetings where the speakers range from politicians, concerned citizens, to business people. Here we gain valuable insight to new ideas like alternative energy, government sponsored conservation programs, and network with others to better serve our community.
