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.
