Nature Walks

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, Tom Tidman, Director of Acton’s Natural Resources Department. Enrollment is limited to 20 school-aged children. This is not a drop-off event; children must be accompanied by an adult, but siblings are welcome.

Using the Acton, Naturally Guides, we find seasonal flora and fauna at one of the town's conservation areas, such as, the Acton Arboretum, Nara Park or the Trail Through Time.

Acton, Naturally Guide

During Nature Walks, we reference Acton, Naturally Nature Guides to identify indigenous species and find local, seasonal flora and fauna. You can borrow an Acton, Naturally Guide from the Acton Memorial Library or the West Acton Citizens' Library.
