About Pierpont Meadow
Nature has reclaimed parts of this former farmland that was, at one time, entirely cleared for agricultural purposes. Stone walls still stand amidst pine groves and along the edge of meadows.
Valuable shrubland provides nesting habitat for a number of declining bird species such as the Brown Thrasher and Eastern Towhee.
- Firefly-filled meadows during the summer.
- Beaver activity at dusk at the small pond on Marsh Road.
- Programs occasionally offered through Wachusett Meadow and Broad Meadow Brook Wildlife Sanctuaries.
