WCC's old page

Your Wilton Conservation Commission (WCC) is responsible for protecting the farms, forests, wetlands, scenic vistas and historic resources that are such an important part of the overall character of our community.

Part of our charter is to educate our citizens about conservation issues and to provide access to public lands for recreation. Placing land in conservation doesn’t mean it’s "off limits". On the contrary, conserved lands are available to the public for their use and enjoyment. In Wilton, 69% of our town is in Current Use or designated as conservation land. That protection keeps us a small rural community with beautiful open spaces, clean water and abundant wildlife.
