Interesting information on local wildlife and short hikes. The walk on the sandbar was lovely & we found some horseshoe crabs laying eggs. The goats are too cute.

My son, Greg Hipius, has written an excellent review of the LPWS and I encourage you to read what he says. I won't be redundant and repeat it all, but just add a few perspectives of my own. You probably won't spend more than an hour or two here unless you really want to explore all the trails and linger... More

Long Pasture provides the kayaks and tour guide. It was beautiful day to paddle across the harbor. We saw lots of birds , paddle thru a marsh - just beautiful. Then we paddle to lighthouse. We went up in small groups and the view was just amazing. We paddle back to nature center with sun setting .

We visited in the afternoon after a local whale watch, and due to impending bad weather and fatigue didn't have enough time to really enjoy everything. The facility is very young as these places go - only about a decade old - and so it is still growing and establishing. The visitors' center is modest, but staffed by a very... More

With my 2 and 4 year old we went on an explore here. There were lots of crabs, clams, birds, snails... My kids were very happy splashing in the warm tide pools. The views were amazing. We are Audubon members so we got in with our membership, but if you want to save a buck you can park at the... More

We stopped here at the recommendation of a waitress where we had dinner. It was lovely, great trails to explore the beautiful grounds. Organic garden which is filled with a bountiful amount of goodies.

I have never seen such a trail in my life. It was like walking in a forest but also felt safe. Green lush trees and a nice walk made it a memorable one.

We come back again and again to watch the birds, smell the wildflowers and walk the trails. This place is always quiet and seemingly as close to heaven as possible. Great place to start or end the day with very easy walking trails that never go too far from the the parking lot. Take a walk down to the beach... More

This wildlife sanctuary is run by Mass. Audubon Society and is worth the trip. Great trails that are easy to navigate with lots of wildlife and birds. Fantastic views of Sandy Neck Lighthouse. Children friendly with great summer programs for all ages. If you love birds and nature, don't miss this place!
