Conservation Lands

The Town manages over 1,400 acres of conservation land in Concord. Some of the more popular areas include the Hapgood Wright Town Forest, Punkatasset Conservation Area, and the Old Rifle Range. Conservation lands are open to the public, subject to certain Rules and Regulations  and visitors are encouraged to enjoy these areas. Certain activities require a Land Use Permit from the Division of Natural Resources (DNR). Please contact the DNR with any questions at 978-318-3285.

Important Information on Ticks in Concord


Unfortunately, the deer tick population is increasing, and the number of pathogens that are transmitted by ticks is on the rise too. Ticks are prevalent on conservation lands, as well as yards, golf courses, and orchards. Not all ticks carry pathogens, but many do. Please be aware of the hazards of deer ticks, how to avoid being bitten, and what to do if you have been bitten. For more information, please click here or visit the Health Division’s webpage http://www.concordma.gov/717/Tick-borne-Diseases.
