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 mkt.com/sfta
