Lime Kiln Farm Wildlife Sanctuary
Donated to Mass Audubon by
Edna Sheinhart in 1990, the
sanctuary features two miles of
trails that traverse rolling fields,
limestone ridge and outcrops,
upland deciduous and conifer forest,
and former pastures. Hayfields,
a farm pond, stonewalls, and
fences attest to the property’s long
agricultural history. For a brief time
limestone was quarried and turned
into lime in the kiln still standing
today. The sanctuary is part of the
14,000-acre Schenob Brook Area of
Critical Environmental Concern.
This property is managed by Pleasant Valley Wildlife Sanctuary.
