More than 6,700-acres of marsh, upland forest and wetlands create an ideal habitat for wildlife and attract large flocks of migratory birds along the Atlantic Flyway between northern breeding grounds and southern wintering areas. Here you’ll also find Vermont’s largest colony of great blue herons. A haven for wildlife observation and photography, discover rare and unique plants such as the threatened Virginia chain fern on the 3-mile round trip Old Railroad Passage Trail. Or take the Discovery Trail — a one-mile loop passing ponds, forest and the Maquam Bog. In winter trails are open for cross-country skiing and snowshoeing. There is no entrance fee to the refuge. In season, enjoy blueberry picking just off Tabor Road.
