Sippican Land Trust’s Harbor & Planting Island Views Walk
May 6 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
This program is being offered as a partnership between the Sippican Lands Trust and the New Bedford Whaling Museum in concert with the rotating exhibition Re/Framing the View: Nineteenth-Century American Landscapes.
Osprey Marsh is a 19.8-acre parcel of protected upland woods, wetlands, and marshland offering spectacular water views of Planting Island Cove. The recently completed Osprey Marsh Boardwalk allows for wheelchair users and people with limited mobility. The trail consists of a 1,800-foot way that combines hard-surface segments with a wooden boardwalk and extends from the existing parking area on Point Road at Osprey Marsh, through the forest and wetlands, to a viewing platform on the cove. Bump outs with benches along the walkway provide places to rest and spaces for strollers and wheelchairs to pass. This trail is accessible for all.
Parking for Osprey Marsh is located off Point Road approximately three miles south of the intersection of Route 6 (Wareham Road) and Point Road in Marion.
The walk will take place rain or shine. In the event of wet weather, wear protective clothing and good boots. In the case of dangerous conditions, we will notify participants of cancellation 24 hours prior.
