Eastern Point Wildlife Sanctuary

Eastern Point Wildlife Sanctuary

What Eastern Point lacks in space it more than makes up for in views and wildlife. Located on a peninsula near the historic Eastern Point Lighthouse, the small sanctuary is a hot spot for butterflies and seabirds at particular times of the year. Look no further than the parking lot for unsurpassed coastal seascape. 

Location Eastern Point Boulevard (private way), Gloucester, MA
Hours: Trails, daily, dawn to dusk; parking lot gate opens daily, 8 am-8 pm
Admission: Free for Mass Audubon members; $10 per car nonmembers (please have exact change)
