The Sherburne Property was graciously donated to the town of Tyngsboro, Massachusetts by the Sherburne family to preserve and protect over 80 acres of open space for the community. It has been developed into the "Sherburne Nature Center" to teach the public about the natural world by the Tyngsboro Trails Committee, which exists thanks to the hard work and dedication of local volunteers of which I also volunteer. It’s through these grass roots organizations that we all can make a difference and help the natural world in a positive way!
Sherburne Nature Center trails are open daily, dawn to dusk, for
the residents of Tyngsboro and neighboring towns. Traverse
several woodland streams, go bird-watching, try to catch a
glimpse of a beaver, and observe meadow wildflowers and
butterflies. It’s a great place for outdoor exercise and to enjoy
nature close to home.
Sherburne Nature Center activities are open to all who are
interested. Activities go rain or shine. In extreme weather
conditions, activities are cancelled. No reservations or fees
required. Children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.
We welcome new members to the Sherburne Nature Center

Center Committee meets monthly. The public is welcome to join
