TOWN OF TOWNSEND
Pursuant to the Massachusetts Wetlands Protection Act and the Townsend Wetlands Bylaw, the Townsend Conservation Commission will hold a public hearing on Wednesday, June 8th, 2022 at approximately 7:10 pm. The hearing will be held virtually via Zoom meeting and in person at Town Hall, on a Notice of Intent (NOI) filed with the Conservation Commission by Massachusetts Division of Fisheries and Wildlife. The project area includes portions of the Squannacook River Wildlife Management Area (WMA), located along Shirley Road (Assessor’s Map 32, Parcel 28, Lot 1).
This project will restore rare natural plant communities, oak woodlands, young forest/shrubland habitats within the Squannacook River WMA to support viable populations of rare and declining plant and animal species especially those associated with open fire influenced habitats and wetlands. This restoration work is proposed within resource areas and their associated buffers.
