Long Pasture Wildlife Sanctuary
Sandy beaches, butterfly-filled meadows, woodland trails, and farm animals combine to make Long Pasture a unique experience on Cape Cod. Gentle, varied trails lead to what some have called a “million dollar view”—with Barnstable Harbor flanked by the dunes of Sandy Neck Barrier Beach. Explore our expansive tidal flats and join us for a kayak tour, boat cruise, or family nature program. Read More
Sanctuary News & Events
Escape to the unique Elizabeth Islands off the coast of Cape Cod. Discover the windswept landscape of Cuttyhunk and step back into a simpler time. Hike the natural preserves of tiny Penikese Island, known as "the sleeping land out in the water", by the native Wampanoags.
Long Pasture is proud to offer free admission to active-duty U.S. military personnel and their families from Memorial Day to Labor Day through the Blue Star Museums program.
Long Pasture has many opportunities for exploration on the water this summer. From kayaking in quiet estuaries to discovering the sea creatures of Lewis Bay and Nantucket Sound, find a way to get off of the beach and onto the water.
