About ACT

A Bit of Background

Established in 2000 by Jim Dehner we are a registered 501C3 organization ACT is managed by an "All-Volunteer Board" working not exclusively but mostly in the town of Ashburnham, MA.

Our current board members are: Gary Howland, President, Matthew Christensen, Treasurer,

Sherisa Sterling, Clerk, Cec Snow, Stewardship Manager, Karen Sargent, Brian Mulroy,

Gene Farrell, Paula Gorell, Lorraine DeSouza, and Mark Washburn.

What We Do

While we do own a few properties in town our work mostly entails the facilitation of open space preservation through establishing and maintaining relationships with landowners, State and federal agencies. Over the last 20 years we have been instrumental in the protection of nearly 5,000 acres of land. In that Ashburnham rests within three major watersheds; the Nashua, the Millers and the Souhegan, we take our work very seriously.
