About Attleboro Springs

Pond at Attleboro Springs

Once a center for healing, complete with herb gardens, Attleboro Springs Wildlife Sanctuary at La Salette has long been a place for renewal and contemplation. Nature has reclaimed the land, and it now provides habitat for forest birds as well as trails for all to enjoy.
