Sudbury Valley Trustees (SVT) and the City of Marlborough Conservation Commission (MCC) are embarking on a critical land stewardship project to restore pitch pine-scrub oak barrens to the Desert Natural Area
. This is a 12-acre area which straddles land owned by SVT in Memorial Forest
and City of Marlborough Conservation land. The first phase of the project will involve cutting and shredding small & medium trees and all shrubs from this area, followed by a prescribed burn.
We want to share information with you about this unique and special local natural area and about the plans for restoration. SVT and the MCC invite you and other members of the community to these events:
