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 15 properties totaling 191.6 acres as open space in Southborough. As a private, non-profit land trust, SOLF needs your help to support our activities in land protection, stewardship, and nature education work in Southborough. Please support SOLF today.
