Time: 10 am
Where: Osprey Marsh
Leader(s): Jim Bride, Executive Director, Sippican Lands Trust

Join SLT’s Executive Director, Jim Bride, for a fall stroll at Osprey Marsh on Friday, October 20 at 10 am.

Osprey Marsh is a 19.8-acre parcel of protected upland woods, wetlands and marshland offering spectacular water views of Planting Island Cove.

Osprey Marsh was donated to the Sippican Lands Trust in 2014 by Mary Howland Smoyer in cooperation with her children and her siblings, Edward Howland, George Howland and Meg Howland. The Howland family inherited the property from their grandparents, Edward and Eleanor Howland, with guidelines expressing the hope that the property could be kept in its natural state. Future plans include building a fully accessible boardwalk at Osprey Marsh that will connect with the existing trail.

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. Please bring water and dress appropriately for the day’s weather as only the worst weather will cancel an SLT walk. If a walk is canceled, then information will be posted to SLT’s website and Facebook page. For directions or further information visit sippicanlandstrust.org or call Sippican Lands Trust at 508-748-3080.
