Howland Marsh

This property was acquired from the Howland Family in 1995.


Features:

Quietly tucked into the southeast corner of Planting Island Cove lie almost 9 acres of serene and unspoiled refuge for shore birds and marine life. The walkway into the marsh makes possible an intimate view of osprey, terns, oystercatchers and ever-present seagulls. Low tide reveals the oysters, mussels, quahogs, and several species of crab that populate the mud flats.


Location:

Point Road, about 2.5 miles from the traffic light on Route 6, on the right hand side. About 100 yards past Rogers Drive.
