Bethlehem Conservation Commission
The Bethlehem Conservation Commission is a town-appointed volunteer committee dedicated to preserving and protecting both the natural resources and scenic beauty of Bethlehem, NH. The Bethlehem Conservation Commission consists of seven members and any number of alternates. We currently have openings for alternates. When members are absent at meetings, alternates are appointed to take their place. In addition to reviewing wetlands permit applications, we are charged with managing the Bethlehem Town Forest.
Our mission is to ensure “the proper utilization and protection of the natural resources and the protection of the watershed resources” of a community, according to New Hampshire RSA 36-A, which provides for the establishment of municipal conservation commissions.
