About the NRC
It is the mission of the Natural Resources Commission to provide stewardship, education and advocacy of the Town of Wellesley park, conservation, and open space system.  Click Here for the Departmental Website

In 1977, Town Meeting decided to consolidate open space management in an elected Natural Resources Commission bearing the statutory authority and responsibility of Park Commissions, Conservation Commissions, Tree Wardens, Town Forest Committees, and Forestry and Pest Control Officers under Massachusetts law.    The right of Town Meeting to establish a Natural Resources Commission was affirmed by the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court. Members of the first Natural Resources Commission were elected in 1979.
