Butterflies flying over a mrash

The Conservation Division is staffed by a full-time conservation agent that primarily supports the work of the Gloucester Conservation Commission in administering the Massachusetts Wetlands Protection Act, the City of Gloucester Wetlands Ordinance, and associated environmental regulations. You may contact the department with questions related to environmental permitting. In addition, you may find it helpful to first consult the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection Homepage as well, many of links to forms are found there.
