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 >

HOURS: Tues–Fri, 9 am–4 pm; Sat–Sun, 10 am–3 pm, closed Mon
