Tidmarsh Wildlife Sanctuary

Once a working cranberry farm, this landscape underwent the largest freshwater ecological restoration ever completed in the Northeast. Now Tidmarsh is a 481-acre property that's home to a vast expanse of cold-water streams, ponds, forest, and woodlands—all permanently protected and open for everyone to enjoy!
