The Lexington Conservation Stewards is a group of over 150 volunteers who work closely with the Conservation Division to care for the town's conservation land.
Through efforts such as building bridges and trails, controlling invasive species, cleaning up waterways, and hosting conservation events, the Stewards continually improve the quality of Lexington's conservation land. A smaller group, the Steward Directors, meets monthly to coordinate stewardship activities.
As a member of the Conservation Stewards, you'll receive our monthly newsletter, notices of stewardship workdays, information on local and regional conservation events, and invitations to trainings, workshops, and other special events.
