The Towns of Harvard, Littleton, and Boxborough intersect along a ridge that spans thousands of acres of ecologically rich lands. We call this area the “High Ridge.”
A mosaic of 1,100 acres in the High Ridge area have been conserved in recent decades, but an additional 1,950 acres remain unprotected and vulnerable to development.
SVT and our conservation partners in the three towns have launched the High Ridge Initiative to save as many of these important lands as possible and create a conservation corridor through the region.

High Ridge Initiative Successes
Launched in 2018, the High Ridge Initiative has already conserved these properties:
- Horse Meadows Knoll, Harvard (47 acres)
- Smith Conservation Land, Littleton & Harvard (47 acres)
- Elizabeth Brook Knoll, Boxborough (15 acres)
- Eastern Greenway-North, Harvard (45 acres)
We are also in the early stages of working with several other land owners who want to protect their land, and we hope to launch additional conservation projects soon.
