Fish and Wildlife looking for input

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the federal agency that oversees the Great Meadows Refuge in Concord and is negotiating with Carlisle officials to purchase the O'Rourke Farm from the town, is looking for input on how their local conservation land should be managed in the future.

In the past, the Fish and Wildlife Service has not outlined how land is managed, according to Bud Olivera, a project leader for the agency. They hope to change that by drafting a series of comprehensive conservation plans for each refuge which will span 15 years.

Residents are invited to attend a series of open meetings; the closest, to be held at the Mediplex Center in Concord on March 3, offers a chance for input on the comprehensive conservation plans.
