A year ago this month, the Beals Preserve — a 55-acre parcel of open space nestled between Main Street and Red Gate and Hickory Lanes — had its grand opening. To celebrate the anniversary, the Southborough Open Land Foundation will host an open house at the property on Saturday. Read on for all the details.

Join the Trustees of the Southborough Open Land Foundation for a morning visit to the Beals Preserve from 9:00 am to noon, on Saturday, September 25, 2010. The Open House marks the one-year anniversary of the Grand Opening of Beals Preserve, which many Southborough residents attended. Stop by for free refreshments and to say hello.

The Trustees will be clearing brush and removing invasive species along the stone walls and field edges as well as performing general clean-up activities. We welcome your help.

Also join us on a walk of our newest trail to Hickory Road. This wonderful pathway was built last week by volunteers from Eastern Mountain Sports, and is part of SOLF’s commitment to enhancing our members’ experience at Beals Preserve.

Our open-house is rain or shine.

If you are joining us in the field, proper dress is required. We may encounter poison ivy and insects. Consider using insect repellent. Check for tics when you get home. Bring gloves, handsaws and loppers.

Parking is at the intersection of Northboro Road and Main Street. Walk to the main entrance on the Reservoir Trail at the bridge over the Wachusett Aqueduct. Meet at the kiosk.
