White Eagle

Sippican Lands Trust acquired the 248-acre White Eagle property in 2005 in partnership with the Town of Marion and other local conservation organizations.

Please note: The bog at White Eagle is operated under an agreement with a local farmer for commercial cranberry production. Please be aware that farming operations include operating heavy equipment, placing honey bees, using occasional fertilizer, and applying fungicide/pesticide.  We may interrupt access for short periods during certain farming operations and appreciate your cooperation. Please note any signs at entry points of the bog area.  


Features:

White Eagle 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.

Part of the White Eagle property features a working 23-acre cranberry bog that has been continuously cultivated for over 100 years. White Eagle offers miles of trails for dog walking, hiking, biking, running, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, hunting (by permission only) and other recreational pursuits.

Eagle Scouts and SLT volunteers helped construct bridges and boardwalk on some of the trails at White Eagle.


Location:

The White Eagle property 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 on the dirt road and follow past an abandoned cranberry bog on your right. Parking is available directly past the bog and along the dirt roadside. The kiosk is a short walk beyond.

Alternatively, you may access our White Eagle trails via our Hoff Property, which has a parking lot and trailhead on Route 6 across from Harding Sails.
