Hassocky Meadow is a beautiful beaver-enhanced wetland located in the heart of the Ipswich River Wildlife Sanctuary. Hassocky Meadow provides breeding and resting areas for many wetland birds including the wood duck, marsh wren, swamp sparrow, Virginia rail, sora rail, American bittern, and least bittern. Sanctuary visitors are usually limited to scanning the meadow from surrounding trails, but this evening we'll become one with this rich wetland habitat.
