Wednesday Walkers at Seal Cove Shore Preserve
September 13, 2017 @ 9:30 am - 11:00 amFree
Seal Cove Shore Preserve lies on the western side of the cove bearing its name. A wooded property, it contains fresh and saltwater wetlands, towering white pines, and more than 2,000 feet of water frontage. The shoreline is marked by a minor cove or “bight” frequented by wading birds and small fish, including at least two species of sticklebacks, a type of native minnow. Seal Cove itself provides wading bird and waterfowl habitat and supports extensive and economically significant clam flats.
Length in miles: approx. 1 mi.
