Event Type

Event Location: 20 Main Street, Acton MA
Keep the building on your left as you drive to the back of the building. Park near the rail trail. We’ll meet here and walk along the rail trail to the site. Get directions here.

If you’ve ever wanted to be involved in cutting a trail through the woods, this service day is for you! Join us as we create the new Stonefield Farm Woodland Trail. Starting with a flagged line, our task is to cut a 0.3 mile long, 4 foot wide trail. Most of the work can be done with pruning shears or clippers, with some small tree removal needed.

Family groups, scout groups and everyone else is welcome. No experience needed – we’ll show you what needs to be done.

Come dressed in boots or sturdy shoes with long sleeves and pants, sprayed for ticks and mosquitos. Don’t forget your sunscreen! Expect weedy, rocky and uneven terrain. Please bring leather work gloves (best for thorns) and bypass pruning shears or clippers if you have them. A kneeling pad for gardening would be helpful. We will have some extra tools and loaner gloves available. We’ll also have water and refreshments.
Please register HERE. You’ll be emailed a copy of this registration.
