Protecting natural areas and farmland around
the Sudbury, Assabet, and Concord Rivers
Get Involved: Volunteer!
We invite everyone in the region to help care for our essential natural areas. SVT has volunteer opportunities for those who want to maintain trails, restore habitats, provide office support, or represent SVT at community events.
