So glad this land is preserved, and that the staff has taken an active interest in the community and the town's land. Also, they offer nice programs for volunteers and for adults and youth. Great syrup too.

Gem of a place. Great activities, camps and classes for kids. Brings you back to appreciating the simple pleasures of the outdoors. Miss Diane is honestly one of the most patient, loving individuals I have ever met. She loves all kids for who they are, and really makes each and every one feel loved and important.

We went on a owl prowl with a naturalist on a cold and windy November night. It was so interesting. Unfortunately we did not see any owls except for the one the naturalist had brought with him. The lecture was informative and fun.

Kids of all ages will enjoy the trails and information about the flora & fauna seen here. The naturalists are interesting and appear to enjoy educating visitors in the various programs offered.

The paths take you into the marsh. Lot's of great programs. Hair gets sticky but shouldn't miss the maple sugar demos in March.
