At this sanctuary, a half-mile boardwalk leads you on a fascinating journey through a red maple swamp and small cattail marsh to a salt marsh overlooking the North River. During the spring and summer, the Woodland Loop usually offers a look at scarlet tanagers and ovenbirds.

Because the sanctuary attracts a variety of birds and wildlife during different seasons, it’s exciting to visit throughout the year. Harbor seals are visible in the river as they occasionally swim past the platform at the end of the boardwalk.

Sanctuary Highlights:

Boardwalks that take you down to the edge of the North River or through the woods to the Hannah Eames Brook where you may see flowering witch hazel, mink, or dragonflies.

Indoor Discovery Rooms where you can watch birds in the rain garden, study a pinecone under a microscope, use your imagination to build a wooden creature, or relax in the Book Nook.

Annual events including an Open House and Native Plant Sale each June and the Holiday Open House in early December.

A gift shop featuring locally handcrafted items in addition to field guides, books, feeders, and nature-themed gifts for all ages.
