Join Us For Our Annual Meeting, May 7, at 7:00 pm, Southborough Community House

Please join us for our annual meeting featuring a presentation  by Dr. Thomas French, from  Massachusetts Fish and Widlife.

Dr. French serves as the Assistant Director  for the Department of Fish and Game’s (DFG) Natural Heritage Program. The DFG program was created in 1983 with the goal of protecting and conserving the hundreds of rare and threatened species found in Massachusetts. He conducts regulatory reviews of construction and transportation projects to make sure animal habitats aren’t disrupted.  In his presentation to SOLF,   Dr. French  will be speaking on recent and projected changes to the suburban wildlife of our region, including the increased sightings of bear and moose.

The Elaine Beals Conservation Award will also be presented at the meeting. This award is presented annually by SOLF  to a person who has worked to help protect the environment in Southborough.

There will be a short business meeting.  Refreshments will be served.

Please join us for this interesting and informative presentation. The meeting will be held at 7:00 pm, at the Community House, 28 Main Street, Southborough. The event is free and open to the public.


The Southborough Open Land Foundation (SOLF) was founded in 1988 to preserve, protect, and enhance the natural resources in the Town of Southborough. Our goal is to maintain and improve the quality of life for the benefit of present and future generations of Southborough’s residents and visitors.

Since its founding, the Southborough Open Land Foundation has preserved seventeen properties totaling 181 acres as open space in Southborough. As Southborough’s local land trust, SOLF needs your help to support our activities in land protection, stewardship and nature education work in Southborough. Please join SOLF today.
