The flat one-mile trail at Mosher Marsh provides serene wetland views. As you loop across fields and forest, look for a vast number of bird species and other wildlife throughout the marsh. Stop on the boardwalks or bench area to see evidence of beaver lodges and ‘potholes’ – small pools for wet land bird habitat. If you arrive in the month of May, you will see blooming lupine along the entrance trail.
Ellie Peters donated this 43-acre preserve to MHLC in 2008.It consists largely of a natural wetland with several shallow man-made ponds to enhance wildlife habitat. A small stream, a tributary to the Chuctanunda Creek, flows through the middle of the property. The site also contains a mix of fields with woods and a historic family cemetery. A unique feature of the loop trail is the 300-foot boardwalk that runs through the wetland.
