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!

Take time to include Long Pasture Wildlife Santuary walks in your summer activities. The walking trail is well groomed and very pleasant with lots to see. It is especially great with children because there are many natural elements to see. It is a very special gem in the mid-Cape. Be sure to visit.

Just happened on this MA Audubon nature preserve when looking for lighthouses on the Cape in the Spring 2012. Not only is there a beautiful lighthouse view, but also lovely walking trails with lots of nature surprises. I have visited serval times since. The nature center is staffed with extremely friendly and knowledgable staff. They always have something interesting to... More

A very pleasant place for some short hiking. We happened to be there in September so there wasn't much wildlife to see. The staff were very courteous and helpful however. No entrance fee but donations requested.

I have been coming to the Cape with my children for 7 yrs now and we finally got a chance to drive to this Sanctuary! What an awesome place! We decided to go on the Goat Walk. I had my 3 nieces w/me so my children's ages ranged from 12 to 4. Each child had a great time. We were... More

This is such a treasure to our community. Ian the Director has done a tremendous job building the programs that are offered at this location. He has built relationships with many of the area schools to integrate their programs into the curriculums. The staff is very knowledgeable. What an opportunity for the children to learn! I could go on forever... More

The reserve covers a large area including a lovely beach and the staff in the visitor centre were really nice, very welcoming, and knowledgeable. It was great to see the rescued turtles and terrapins, and walk the trails.

My 6 yr old granddaughter and I went on May 19th, a little early in the season. Some flowers were bloomed, a couple birds was about. We did get to see the Sun Halo. Visitors center was still closed until this wk so there wasn't any bathroom access. I would have liked to have a map of the many different... More
