The Lexington Conservation Stewards
The Lexington Conservation Stewards is a group of over 150 volunteers who work closely with the Conservation Division to care for the town's conservation land. Through efforts such as building bridges and trails, controlling invasive species, cleaning up waterways, and hosting conservation events, the Stewards continually improve the quality of Lexington's conservation land. A smaller group, the Steward Directors, meets monthly to coordinate stewardship activities.
