Nature Walks

Every fall and spring, we sponsor nature walks in one of Acton's Conservation areas. Please join us for a FREE Guided Nature Walk with our guide. Enrollment is limited. This is not a drop-off event; children must be accompanied by an adult, but siblings are welcome. 

Thanks for joining our Acton Water Wise Nature Walk  on April 26

Over 20 adults and children joined our spring nature walk, led by Brewster Conant + the Acton Water District, where we learned facts about our town water + history, conservation methods, the water table and much more on the Isaac Davis Trail, off the Bruce Freeman Rail Trail. 

We learned about local history, land + water resources + STEM connections from our guides, Brewster Conant and the Acton Water Department during our nature walk at 549 Main Street near Nashoba Brook.

For this nature walk, AB PIP STEM partnered with the Town of Acton Natural Resources, the Acton Water District, and

Acton Nature Guide

During Nature Walks, we reference the New Acton Nature Guide to identify indigenous species and find local, seasonal flora and fauna. You can borrow an Acton Nature Guide from the Acton Memorial Library or the West Acton Citizens' Library or you can purchase an Acton Nature Guide guide at Pedal Power on Route 2A in Acton or Unicorn Books in West Acton. Find out more.

The Acton Nature Guide was sponsored by the Town of Acton Natural Resources Department with Support from AB PIP STEM.
