Take a tour of Osprey Marsh July 15

Jul 08, 2017

Marion — Join Yelena Sheynin, Sippican Lands Trust’s Head Steward, for a walk at Osprey Marsh on Saturday, July 15 starting at 10 a.m., from the Osprey Marsh kiosk. The walk will explore the natural habitat of this property off Point Road which is home to osprey, blue heron, horseshoe crabs, and other plants and animals.

The Howland family donated Osprey Marsh to the Sippican Lands Trust in 1995 with specific instructions to keep the property in its natural state for educational and recreational use. This 19.8-acre parcel features a ¾ mile trail that ends along the shoreline of Planting Island Cove in Marion offering sweeping views of Planting Island Cove and Sippican Harbor. Future plans for Osprey Marsh include building a fully accessible boardwalk that will connect with the existing trail at the site.

Parking for Osprey Marsh is located off Point Road, approximately three miles south of the intersection of Route 6 (Wareham Road) and Point Road in Marion.

The walk is free and no registration is required. Bringing your own water is recommended. The Lands Trust also encourages walkers to dress appropriately for the day’s weather, as only the worst weather will cancel a walk.

If a walk is canceled, then information will be posted to SLT’s website and Facebook page.
