The Bradford Conservation Commission Welcomes You!

The Bradford Conservation Commission (BCC) was officially established in 1990, when its first set of by-laws were approved by the Bradford Selectboard. This 9-member board is made up of community volunteers who serve for 3-year terms. The BCC meets at the Bradford Academy at 6:30 pm on the first and third Wednesdays of each month, and all meetings are open to the public.

Forest Walk & Talk at Helen's Haven

As we walk the land, we'll hear about:
• Forest Management Planning from Redstart Forester, Marcus Bradley;
• History and Wildlife of the Land from Gary Moore, neighbor & syndicated wildlife columnist;
• Conservation Easements from Sara Cavin, Conservation Project Manager, Upper Valley Land Trust;
• Amphibians & Vernal Pools from Nancy Jones, Biology Teacher and BCC Chair;

Followed by a campfire, snacks and conversation. (Consider bringing a folding lawn chair.) Parking is limited, so please car pool. We suggest meeting at Elizabeth's Park on Fairground Road & sharing a ride with others. Directions: Fairground Road to just across the Interstate Bridge, then left on Moore Lane. Continue straight ahead.

Although this event is free, we are asking that people register at our Eventbrite page so that we have an idea of how many people will be attending:

Bradford Home Energy Challenge

In January 2013, Efficiency Vermont, in partnership with Vermont Energy and Climate Action Network (VECAN) and other organizations, launched a one year effort to increase the number of homes completing comprehensive energy efficiency improvements in Vermont. The Challenge will help Vermont reach its statewide goal of 25% energy savings in 80,000 homes by the year 2020. Bradford's goal is 38 homes. Find Out More!


Come run or cheer on your friends on June 1st! Refreshments by donation. A National Trails Day event sponsored by the Bradford Conservation Commission with support from St. J Auto and Upper Valley Pediatrics.
