This is the fourth year that the Southborough Community Fund, a fund of  The Foundation for Metrowest, has helped fund this highly successful program.  SOLF is grateful for the continuing support it receives from the SCF.


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 16 properties totaling 191.6 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.
