The Coolidge Corner Box

On my way to work this morning, I ran an errand, and discovered the following box sitting on the Beacon St. "island" between Pleasant St. and Waldo St. in Brookline:

It appears to be a rather large wooden box. Inside it's lined with what appears to be aluminum foil, and there's a wooden log just sitting there.

Anyone have any idea what's going on? If I had to guess, I'd say someone is doing an experiment with using sunlight to set the log aflame. But who is doing this, and why? Did they have to get permits? There was no sign explaining this at all.
