Forest, shrubby fields, wetlands, and old stone walls tell the story of this sanctuary's past as a working farm and orchard.

Today at Lynes Woods Wildlife Sanctuary, you can walk an easy 1-mile loop along a quiet woodland path to the crystal clear Lyman Brook and listen for the music of water rushing over rocks.
