Conservation Commission

In April of 1990, the Town of Hinsdale appointed a Conservation Commission. Through continuing support from the efforts of the volunteers elected to serve on the commission, conservation priorities that are important to the town are addressed on an ongoing basis.  


Hinsdale has a total land area of 14,497 acres.  The topography of Hinsdale is dominated by steep valleys running in a southwestern direction from the northeast corner of Town.  The Town’s defining features are the River Valleys which the Ashuelot and Connecticut Rivers flow through.  Hinsdale borders Pisgah State Park to its east and Wantastiquet State Park to its north.
