East Boston Camps was acquired by the Town of Westford on March 31, 2005 after a unanimous vote at a February 7, 2005, Special Town Meeting. The East Boston Camps Master Plan calls for the property to be open and accessible to all Westford residents; for the protection of the property's forest, wildlife, and water quality; and for the preservation of the feeling of serenity, peacefulness, and quiet of this open space.
The Westford Stream Team is looking for volunteers. They are a local group monitoring the water quality of Westford's brooks since 2005. Their funding comes from the Conservation Commission and Westford Conservation Trust.
