The 248-acre White Eagle property supports a rich diversity of habitats including upland pine, mixed hardwood forest, shrub and wooded swamp, freshwater marsh and cranberry bogs. The White Eagle property and surrounding land make up a 482-acre contiguous parcel of land that is home to several rare and threatened species including the Eastern Box Turtle, the Spotted Turtle and the Water-willow Stem Borer.

White Eagle is located off of Route 6 in Marion. Turn onto Parlowtown Road across from the town cemetery and follow road until you reach the cul-de-sac. Veer left onto the dirt road and follow past an abandoned cranberry bog on your right. The dirt road is bumpy so please use caution when driving down dirt road. Parking is available directly past the bog and along the dirt roadside. The kiosk is a short walk beyond.

The walk is free and no registration is required. Please dress appropriately for the day’s weather and please bring water for your canine companion(s) and you. 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.
