Lying within the urbanized area of the greater Boston metropolitan area is Sherborn, a small town that prides itself on its rural character and abundant open spaces. One of the large open spaces in the town is the Barber Reservation, a 200-acre town-owned forest. This management plan provides the Sherborn Conservation Commission with vision alternatives for the Barber Reservation, and identifies a plan to integrate utility corridor maintenance with the needs of the residents and wildlife that use the site. Design features and management recommendations include details for a native meadow establishment, a parking area schematic design, invasive species management, forestry recommendation, and trail re-design.
