The Greenacres Habitat Restoration project is located between Wakefield and Yorktown Road on the "paper road" that parallels the creek.  

The project was started in 2016 by a group of Greenacres residents who were concerned about the negative impact of invasive plant species on the local environment, and is a collaboration with the Little Falls Watershed Alliance (LFWA) and the Aqua Eagles from Westbrook Elementary School. More about the project is HERE.
