Field Trip: Stony Brook Wildlife Sanctuary

As a member of the Mass Audubon Society, we do our best to utilize the resources they preserve throughout the state. This past weekend, we took advantage of the early Spring weather and visited the Stony Brook Wildlife Sanctuary in Norfolk, MA (a small town of eleven thousand about an hour south of Boston).

Stony Brook covers just over 100 acres and has a manageable 2 miles of trails that are great for all ages. The paths are relatively flat (watch out for protruding roots in the wooded areas) and cover a variety of landscapes. There’s a children’s play area and picnic tables just outside the main entrance. A straight path leads from the visitors center to the boardwalk overlooking the Stony Brook Reservoir and is a perfect spot for turtle-spotting on sunny days.
