Arcadia Wildlife Sanctuary

First snowfall on the river at Arcadia Wildlife Sanctuary

Spanning Easthampton and Northampton, Arcadia’s diverse terrain of forest, meadows, grasslands, marsh, and wetlands attracts an extraordinary variety of wildlife. You'll also find a thriving population of wildflowers thanks to its rich, loamy soil—a characteristic of the Connecticut River floodplain. Please leave dogs and other pets at home.
