North River Wildlife Sanctuary is named for the state-designated Scenic River that winds along its northern boundary. The sanctuary's fields, oak forest, and salt marsh attract a wide variety of birds and seals are often visible from the riverside platform. Programs and summer camp take place in and around the historic building. Please leave dogs and other pets at home.
