To maintain, enhance, and restore the rich, natural resources of Fairfield.

About Us

Maintaining, enhancing and restoring the rich natural resources in Fairfield is the mission of the Conservation Department which serves to conserve, develop, supervise, and regulate natural resources.

The Conservation Department manages the Town’s almost 1,200-acres of open space, restored salt marshes, regulates activities on inland wetland-regulated areas and 1,000-acres of shellfish grounds. The Conservation Department also provides and maintains miles of hiking trails, signs and notices for protected land and water areas, coordinating with enforcement agencies. The Department also involves the community through outreach projects in the schools and scouts and through public meetings.

Operating under the Conservation Department are the Conservation Commission, Inland Wetlands Agency, Land Acquisition Commission and the Shellfish Commission.
