The Conservation Commission was formed in 2003 as part of the Village’s Comprehensive Long-Range Plan to meet the conservation goals of Pinehurst. Since the Conservation Commission was established, it has become a large entity with six committees and many members. The Conservation Commission is currently chaired by Lorraine Tweed, a former member of Village Council. Over the past several years, the Conservation Commission has performed a number of activities including: educational workshops, Arbor Day, and promoting conservation by participating in community events.
