SLT’s 1,800’ Osprey Marsh Universally Accessible Boardwalk is located on Point Road in Marion. The project has been designed to minimize environmental impact and to maximize accessibility for infants in strollers, older adults, and persons with mobility impairments, including those in wheelchairs. The boardwalk proceeds from the Osprey Marsh parking area through maritime forest, wetlands, and fragile salt marsh habitat to a viewing platform overlooking Planting Island Cove.

Sippican Lands Trust continues to seek donations from the public to support the long-term maintenance of this boardwalk. More information about the project and how to support it can be found at
