Nahant Thicket
Mass Audubon hosted a public walk at Nahant Thicket Wildlife Sanctuary to discuss the proposed restoration work. This 4-acre parcel provides important habitat for migratory birds and is a much-loved destination for a quiet walk. Over the years, invasive vegetation has reduced habitat quality, trails have eroded, and the existing system of drainage ditches has degraded. Mass Audubon has designed a restoration plan to address these issues.

The initial plans were submitted to the Nahant Conservation Commission and are available on our website and can be viewed in the Inspectional Services and Town Clerk’s Office at Nahant Town Hall. Please note that these plans will be updated based on the feedback from the conservation commission and community members.

Please contact Margo Servison or 781-259-2192 with comments or if you have any questions regarding the meeting.

NAHANT'S SOLARIZE PLUS COMMITTEE LOOKING FOR FEEDBACK!

Take Our Survey and Provide Your Feedback

A town-volunteer-run program would help residents and businesses learn about renewable energy and feel more comfortable pursuing rooftop solar.
This survey helps us gauge interest levels in the community, and make contact with potential participants and volunteers.

Nahant, Swampscott, and Salem, plan to participate in the Solarize Plus Program from MassCEC. Solarize Plus helps home and business owners reduce their energy costs by installing equipment, like solar panels and high efficiency heating and cooling systems, through a group purchase program that significantly reduces installation costs.
