The Andover Conservation Commission aims to protect Andover’s natural resources in accordance with the state law and the Town’s Wetlands Protection Bylaw, Article XIV, and to act as trustees in perpetuity of the Town’s conservation land. As of 2021, there are over 2,200 acres of protected land that are held in the care and custody of the Andover Conservation Commission. This land is managed and stewarded by the Conservation Division, with the assistance of the Department of Public Works and a large network of dedicated volunteer land stewards. Andover’s conservation areas are critical to supporting clean air and water, wildlife habitat, and recreational amenities for the community.

Land Acknowledgement

We respectfully acknowledge that Andover conservation land has been established on the territory of many Indigenous peoples, who have stewarded this land for hundreds of generations. With gratitude to the Andover Center for History & Culture for their guidance, we acknowledge the harmful effect colonization and violent systemic and cultural inequities have had on our understanding of Indigenous identity and terminology. Andover was home to the Pennacook people as early as 6000 BCE, and we honor their past, present, and emerging leaders.
