SOLF 2023 Annual Appeal is underway

Published on December 16, 2023 by Eileen Samberg

Our 2023 Annual Appeal is underway.

Forests, wetlands, lakes, and open fields are all understood to be important habitat for wildlife. But there’s more! Shrublands, those “overgrown fields,” and small shallow ponds also provide food and shelter for many species. The Southborough Open Land Foundation is working to create and maintain such diverse habitats of native species. This is an important component for a healthy environment.

  • SOLF and the Open Space Preservation Commission honored SOLF Trustee Whitney Beals, a much loved and sorely missed advocate for healthy habitats, with the dedication of The Whit Beals Garden: Biodiversity through Pollination at Beals Preserve.
  • We have launched “SOLF presents: Nature in Southborough,” a monthly column for MySouthborough and our website.
  • Cassie Melo completed her Eagle Scout Project of building and installing two cedar benches at Beals Preserve.
  • Middlesex Savings Bank funded two granite benches, also placed in Beals Preserve.
  • SOLF is prioritizing more trails and maintenance at our properties.
  • Programs such as our recent talk on how maple syrup is made will continue.
  • SOLF will keep building a team of volunteers for trail work.
