Sherborn Forest and Trail Association

 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.  You can pay membership or make a donate to Sherborn Forest and Trail Association on-line at

SFTA also donates funds to assist in the purchase and maintenance of open spaces and brings neighbors together to discuss conservation issues.

Upcoming Events 2015

February 6th - Return of the Conservation Connections event. This evening party and social time at the Sherborn Community center will also feature a guest speaker talking about the forests and how to read the history of the land on your next trip in the woods.  There will be a question and answer time at the end.  We will also have music, food, and drinks.  Send us your favorite photos on the open space in town for a slide show.  We have had a bunch of Raffle prizes donated that we will be finding new homes for.  Let us know if you have somthing you would like to raffle off to help support the open space and trails of Sherborn.


COA walks - Sherborn Forest and Trail helps lead walks around town with the COA on a regular basis. You can check their calendar for the latest times and locations

Mountain Bike Rides - guided rides of some trails around Sherborn - Let us know if you would be interested in joining us for a ride. We have a ride about Once a week.  This time of year it starts to get dark early, so for weeknight rides we bring lights with us to help see on the trail. Weekend rides we usually head out onto the trail in the morning.  Let us know if you'd like to join us.

Snow events - We are looking into the plans for winter snow events.  Explore the woods and fields by ski and/or snowshoe.  Hopefully with some warm food and drink for post event conversations (As the barn renovation continues at the Barber Reservation). Let us know if you would like to join us for some fun in the snow.
