Allens Pond Wildlife Sanctuary

Beach Loop Trail in late fall at Allens Pond Wildlife Sanctuary

Spanning hundreds of acres of protected beach, fields, woodlands, pond, and marsh, Allens Pond Wildlife Sanctuary was created by generous families who opted to conserve their land. Extensive trail systems offer ocean and pond views from many vantage points and afford visitors a full day of walking and birding. Please leave dogs and other pets at home.

Allens Pond Wildlife Sanctuary

In the summer of 2021, we conducted pilot studies at both Allens Pond and Great Neck wildlife sanctuaries on the South Coast. The results we found will help inform future land management decisions as we work to enhance turtle nesting habitats at these two properties.
