Wildlife Survey

In March 2014, SOLF began a wildlife survey of reptiles and amphibians at Beals Preserve. The project was originated and is being directed by SOLF member Lawrence Spezzano of Southborough with the generous assistance of wonderful volunteers from Southborough and other communities! SOLF volunteers are continuing to collect evidence, including bird, mammal, insect and plant diversity through 2015. More volunteers are always needed,  please contact SOLF at, if your are interested. The information  already collected suggests relationships among species, their gender, length and mass, which could drive future conservation efforts in Southborough and neighboring towns!  For more information on this project, and information about about what has already been found, click here.


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.
