“My stump speech is, the Conservation Commission has really taken the forefront in that their properties can be used for recreation, family recreation,” said French. “This may be an extreme example.”
The conservation land and its grounds and picnic tables are not open for public camping, however. People interested in camping must contact the Conservation Division before camping, and a volunteer will stay with the group, said Decelle.
The next overnight campout planned for Serio’s Grove will be April 27. Other overnight campouts planned for this year will be on May 25, June 22, July 20, Aug. 17, Sept. 21 and Oct. 19.
People interested in more information or in signing up to be part of a campout should contact the town’s Conservation Division by calling 978-623-8311, said Decelle.
