Common Wildlife: The agricultural setting combined with the floodplain forests of this property supports deer, turkey, and woodcock.  The location along the Connecticut River is important for migrating waterfowl.  Also likely a good spot for viewing migratory songbirds in spring and fall.


Special Notes: The fields on this property are under agricultural lease.  The lease keeps prime farmland in use and a portion of corn is left unharvested for wildlife use.


Directions: Heading north on Route 12, 0.5 miles north of the intersection with Route 123, take a left onto the access road for the WMA.  Heading south on Routes 123 and 12 in Walpole,  0.6 miles south of the intersection with Main St., take a right onto the access road for the WMA.  Parking is at the boat access site at the end of the access road.
