Sherborn Forest and Trail Association is a family oriented volunteer organization dedicated to the enjoyment, protection and maintenance of our natural resources. To that end, SFTA sponsors many outdoor events through the seasons: guided walks through public lands, bicycle rides on the trails, a hunter pace for equestrians, trail maintenance and construction gatherings, and occasional parties.
SFTA also donates funds to assist in the purchase and maintenance of open spaces and brings neighbors together to discuss conservation issues. Please let us know if you will be able to join us for any of our upcoming events, or if you would like to volunteer to help with any of them. You can reach us at
