The Conservation Commission is the official agency specifically charged with the protection of a community's natural resources. The Conservation Commission, under the powers of the Wetlands Protection Act (Massachusetts General Law c.131, 40) and the Town of Westwood's Wetlands Bylaw (Chapter 392), functions to regulate work in or near wetlands and river resource areas and encourages and works towards the acquisition and management of Conservation Land.
