Members of the Conservation Commission recently planted 60 seedlings in a clearing in the Kimball Pond Conservation area created to improve wildlife habitat. When mature the specifically selected trees and shrubs will provide food for birds and animals. Crab apple, elderberry, cranberry, juneberry, hazelnut and beach plum were among the varieties planted.

Providing quality wildlife habitat is a priority in all of the town's conservation areas.
