The 2018 Nashoba Woodlands Program is the fourth year that the Historical Society has collaborated with the Littleton Conservation Trust and with the town’s Conservation and Historical Commissions to organize an enjoyable, informative, community-wide event for kids and adults of all ages. Once again, we have lined up experts to share their special knowledge to teach about their areas of expertise. Activities to inform and entertain will be available. There are also displays in the Exhibit Tent about the Cobb and Yapp families that once farmed the land.
