Town of Clarence Conservation Advisory Council Mission Statement

The Conservation Advisory Council (CAC) promotes conservation efforts in the Town of Clarence. The CAC is sought by Town officials for consultation on conservation issues and seeks to partner with citizens and volunteer groups to fulfill its mission and enhance the Town’s natural beauty and resources. The CAC has a wide and comprehensive view of conservation, which includes: protection and management of wildlife, forests, wetlands, parks and natural areas, to name a few.

CAC members are Town residents who volunteer for two year terms. For a detailed list of duties, see Chapter 7 of the Clarence Town Code. Our liaison Town Council member is Paul Shear.
