The Perfect Floodplain: Great Meadows National Wildlife Refuge, Sudbury, MA

Great Meadows National Wildlife Refuge
73 Weir Hill Road
Sudbury, MA

Reasons to venture:

  • Get lost in the middle of woods chock full of migratory birds without leaving the burbs.
  • Sudbury Valley Trustee land across the street is even more rustic
  • I have lived here for years and I haven't figured out a drop and pick-up for a paddle here, I am such a loser.
Your favorite hike near the pike?

Are you keeping a list of bird species you have seen at this location. That way you can compare each time you go. This will help the children seen that different birds may be there at different seasons.

I have always aspired to watching birds with the kids, but have never been organized enough to stay on top of them. I need a travel notebook. Thanks for the tip.
