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

For the first time, Long Pasture Wildlife Sanctuary is offering unique multi-day field courses in which adults can explore the dynamic coastal environment of Cape Cod. The two courses in this Field Studies Series emphasize active outdoor experiences and are taught by professional naturalists, scientists, and photographers.
