The Acton Arboretum, a 65-acre preserve with trails crossing meadows, gardens, and woods, is a pleasant place to go for a nature walk in the summer.
The arboretum, located near Acton Center 38 miles northwest of Boston, was established in 1986. Five years later, a community organization called The Friends of the Acton Arboretum was incorporated. Volunteers from the organization raise funds, donate plants and materials, and maintain the grounds.
Here are some more seasonal walks through the arboretum:
