Mission Statement:  The mission of the Bedford, New Hampshire Conservation Commission is to protect, preserve and conserve the town's natural resources and open space land for the common good.  This includes stewardship and management of conservation land, protecting wetlands and vernal pools, and the planning and acquisition of land for conservation purposes.  The Commission works with landowners to administer state and town wetlands regulations, and advises other town boards, such as the Planning Board and Zoning Board of Adjustment on environmental impacts and alternative considerations regarding development projects.  The Conservation Commission promotes conservation activities and communicates with the citizens of Bedford on important environmental issues.  Our motto:  Keeping Bedford Beautiful

What's happening at the Pulpit Rock Conservation Area?"  The Town is working on the completion of a multi-year trail improvement grant so you may see or hear contractors with mechanical equipment.  To keep everyone safe, please be kind and give them room to work and practice good Trail Etiquette.
