About Our Organization

The Plymouth County Conservation Foundation is a non-profit organization whose mission it is to encourage environmental education for future generations. We support development and enhancement of our conservation and recreation areas by seeking and receiving charitable donations.  All projects are completed within the jurisdiction of the Plymouth County Conservation Board.  Our Foundation works to connect with the community, especially schools and youth groups, to bring a love of nature and an understanding of Conservation to each new generation.  Some of our projects have included a handicap accessible playground with interactive nature features, a bird watching blind and a Disc Golf course.

With the addition of 305 acres to Hillview Recreation Area the foundation is excited to help expand our hunting areas and improve upon our already established hiking, biking and equine trails as well as add another 9 holes to our Disc Golf Course. We have also been exploring the possibility of adding an equine camping area and another fishing pond.

Current Project: Hillview Recreation Area Improvement Project

Hillview Recreation Area Improvement Project

In 2018 Hillview Recreation Area aquired 305 acres directly adjacent to it.  One of the first things done was fencing the bounderies and putting up park signage.  Last year we seeded rye grass as a cover crop, this fall it will be seeded with native grasses.   In the spring of 2020 we did a prescribed burn on 55 acres as well as planted a 10 acre food plot.  A crossing from the original park to the new area has also been constructed. A certain portion of this area will be open to hunting this fall.  Over time our plans include building hiking and riding trails, developing a fishing pond, opening more areas to hunting, expanding our disc golf course from 9 holes to 18, and possibly building an equine camping area.

Past Projects

  • Hillview Recreation Area Improvement Project

    Hillview Recreation Area just acquired an additional 300 acres directly adjacent to it. We are in the process of returning the land to its natural state by seeding it with native grasses as well as removing and replacing fencing. Over time we hope to build hiking and riding trails, develop a fishing pond, open more areas to hunting, expand our disc golf course from 9 holes to 18, and possibly build an equine camping area.
