About Pierpont Meadow

Loop Trail at Pierpont Meadow

At Pierpont Meadow Wildlife Sanctuary, 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.
