Acton - Shapleigh Youth Conservation Corp

The ASYCC is funded by donations and grants and supported by a number of volunteers. By donating to the ASYCC, you allow us to continue our work preserving the quality of our lakes and land values while employing local school children.


The Acton-Shapleigh Youth Conservation Corps (ASYCC), was founded in 2001, and is committed to protecting the waterways within Mousam Lake and Square Pond Watershed.

This is achieved by providing education, community outreach, courtesy boat inspections, technical assistance, and the installation of effective erosion control practices to the communities of Acton and Shapleigh.

The ASYCC continues to work to sustain and protect the valuable waterways of Goose Pond, Loon Pond, Mousam Lake, and Square Pond for the enjoyment of the community and its visitors.
