Lake Wampanoag Wildlife Sanctuary
Since Lake Wampanoag is one of the lesser visited wildlife sanctuaries, it’s easy to be alone there. That is, of course, if you don’t count the fascinating wildlife that inhabit this sanctuary including moose, bears, deer, bobcats, and coyotes. The ecologically managed grasslands (i.e. mowing late in the season) support Bobolinks and Savannah Sparrows.
Location: Raymond Street, Gardner, MA
