Massachusetts Audubon Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary

Massachusetts Audubon Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary Review

Encompassing nearly 1,000-acres, this reserve is home to more than 250 species of birds. The jewel of the Massachusetts Audubon Society, the sanctuary is a superb place for walking, birding, and watching the sun set over the salt marsh and bay. The Esther Underwood Johnson Nature Center contains two 700-gallon aquariums that offer an up-close look at marine life common to the region's tidal flats and marshlands. From the center you can hike five short nature trails, including a fascinating boardwalk trail that leads over a salt marsh to a small beach—or you can wander through the butterfly garden. The sanctuary has camps for children in July and August and weeklong field schools for adults.
