Osprey Marsh is a 19.8-acre parcel of protected upland woods, wetlands and marshland offering spectacular 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 be kept in its natural state.

With the donation of the Osprey Marsh property from the Smoyer and Howland families, Sippican Lands Trust now owns 28.7 acres of contiguous waterfront off of Point Road in Marion. Current plans include building a fully accessible boardwalk at Osprey Marsh that will connect with the existing trail.

Parking for Osprey Marsh is located off of 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.
