WINTER ANNOUNCEMENTS AND UPDATES

2020 US Census Information - Details Here!

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.

Attention Dog Owners: Any resident seasonal or full time who owns a dog must license that dog or dogs on a yearly basis, please contact the Town Clerk or fill out the application that is attached to the 2019 Street List/Census. Contact mbarile@nahant.org for info.

Platform Tennis Update: It is not necessary to secure a key to use the new platform tennis court at the Nahant Country Club. Residents may use the new court closest to the parking lot without charge on weekdays 9 AM - 5 PM. Paddles and balls are available.
