Lands Trust: Time for a mid-winter stroll

Feb 5, 2018

Looking to enjoy that mid-winter wonderland outside the window? Join the Sippican Lands Trust and walk leader, Alan Harris, for a mid-winter walk at Peirson Woods on Sunday, February 11, starting at 1 p.m.

During the walk, admire views of Sippican Harbor from the viewing platform overlooking Blankenship Cove. On a clear day, Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the northern Elizabeth Islands can be seen from this platform.

The walk will begin at the Peirson Woods kiosk just off of Point Road at 1 p.m. on Sunday, February 11. The parking area for Peirson Woods is located just off of Point Road, approximately 1.4 miles south of the intersection of Route 6 (Wareham Road) and Point Road in Marion. Parking is very limited, so participants should be careful when parking vehicles along Point Road.

The 30-acre property features a wide range of habitat from marshes to woodlands supporting herons, winter buffleheads and the protected diamondback terrapin.

The walk is free and no registration is required. If more than three inches of snow are on the ground, then the walk will be canceled. If the walk is canceled due to inclement weather or more than three inches of snow on the ground, then information will be posted to the Sippican Lands Trusts' website and Facebook page.
