| Who We Are
Prior to 1998, ACT was focused on recycling and other conservation activities, but since 1998, efforts have been re-directed toward actively pursuing land protection, In this short time, ACT has participated in the protection of over 235 acres of open space in Acton, including 8 conservation restrictions held or co-held by ACT, and the purchase of land in the Heath Hen Meadow Brook area. Once ACT acquires a property or a conservation restriction on property, it is never relinquished. Although not a government agency, ACT works actively on issues of land protection with Town Committees and Boards, such as the Community Preservation Committee and the Open Space Committee.
acting to preserve open space, ACT works with
private landowners to seek ways to preserve
their cherished land. As Acton becomes more and
more developed, conservation opportunities are
rapidly diminishing, so when preservation is
possible, ACT uses every tool available to
protect our most important remaining open
spaces. In addition
ACT pursues its goals of conserving and
maintaining land through educational programs,
seasonal walks and public outreach.
