Stony Brook Wildlife Sanctuary

View across the pond in late fall at Stony Brook Wildlife Sanctuary

Known for its extensive boardwalk system that goes through forest, fields, and wetlands, Stony Brook offers up-close views of wildlife above and under the water. Located adjacent to the 140-acre Bristol Blake State Reservation and cooperatively managed with the Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR), this former 18th-century mill site now supports native wildlife. Please leave dogs and other pets at home.
