Conservation Commission

From the Issue: 
October 2009
We are having lovely weather to enjoy Troy. This summer I was encouraged to find The Falls of Falls Brook off Richmond Rd. The first time I visited the Falls the chutes emanated a very Zen atmosphere, quiet and peaceful. Then I hiked them again after TS Danny and was treated to a roaring water concert of sight and sound. I encourage you to visit them this season. Remember to take only pictures and leave only footprints, but walk lightly.

Lynn Estep-Goodridge kindly took on the job of coordinating the Fall roadside pick up campaign. Please call her at 242-7776 for the blue bags. It would be nice if every neighborhood got together and took care of their street. The full bags can be left on the side of the road and should be picked up by the state road crews. If they don't get picked up, let Jim Dicey know, or bring them to the transfer station.


Troy Conservation Commission's first Natural Resource Inventory Forum was coincidentally held on the last game of an incredible winning streak for the Red Sox. (Go Sox!)  The turnout was less than we had hoped for, however, we were happy to see those who came.  The strawberries and whipped cream, freshly squeezed lemonade and homemade cookies were fabulous!

Jeff Littleton of Moosewood Ecological conducted the Forum which included many maps of Troy.  We talked about places of natural resources in Troy and what areas we think are most important to conserve.  We all understand Troy needs some development to increase the tax base, but we want to know where that development should happen and where it shouldn't.  It's not too late to let us know what natural areas you consider to be most important in Troy.  Please stop by our booth on Old Home Day for a review of the first Forum and an invitation to the second Forum and to help judge the Photo Contest.
