Weddings and Other Special Functions
Community residents and Mass Audubon members alike cherish Long Pasture Wildlife Sanctuary for its tranquil beauty and captivating wildlife. With its open space and magnificent views of Barnstable Harbor, Long Pasture offers a natural outdoor setting for wedding ceremonies and other special events. The location for weddings is the ½ acre lawn surrounding the Long Pasture House, a Cape built in 1948 and formerly a private residence. Within the home, now Long Pasture Visitor's Center, is a room that can be set aside for preparations, and a convenient bathroom. Parking for approximately 75 cars is available on mowed sections of an adjacent field approximately 400 feet from the house. The terrace of Long Pasture's Cape Cod Style house leads to a small pond and trail network which takes you through a variety of ornamental and native trees as it makes its way to the harbor overlooks. Guests are welcome to enjoy all of Long Pasture's trails and grounds before and after the event.
