Fodor's Expert Review Cape Poge Wildlife Refuge

Edgartown Nature Preserve/Wildlife Refuge

A conglomeration of habitats where you can swim, walk, fish, or just sit and enjoy the surroundings, the Cape Poge Wildlife Refuge, on the easternmost shore of Chappaquiddick Island, encompasses more than 6 square miles of wilderness. Its dunes, woods, cedar thickets, moors, salt marshes, ponds, tidal flats, and barrier beach serve as an important migration stopover and nesting area for numerous sea- and shorebirds. The best way to get to the refuge is as part of a naturalist-led jeep drive. Other tours are also provided by the Trustees of Reservations.
