Arcadia Wildlife Sanctuary

First snow 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.

Phone: 413-584-3009
Hours: Monday–Saturday, 9 am-3 pm • Sundays, seasonally variable
