These events focus around the Trail Through Time, a heritage trail through town-owned conservation lands in North Acton, Massachusetts. The Trail includes sites and stone structures representative of two distinct cultures, the colonial and the Native American, that existed both serially and concurrently within a relatively small geographical area.

We have had three community service days and all have been very successful. Our first event over a year ago involved over 32 people, from all age groups. Two subsequent events were also a lot of fun and accomplished much trail and field clearing.

The next community service day is planned for the afternoon of Sunday, November 8, 2015. The focus will be clearing the immediate area and laying the foundations for several informational kiosks. The initial work will be on the land nearest the Native American stone piles on the far side of Nashoba Brook. All necessary tools and materials will be provided; just bring yourself and some gloves. To volunteer and for details, please contact Bob Ferrara at or 978-263-8642 or Linda McElroy at

The work will begin at noon. Beforehand, at 11:00 a.m. volunteers are invited to Julie’s Place at 208 Main St., Acton for an optional brunch, where we will provide background on the fascinating history and archeology of this site, located on the largest undeveloped tract of land in Acton.
