Sanctuary spans over 112 acres and features self-guided trails that are perfect for hiking, cycling and cross-country skiing. It is home to 35 mammals, 60 lichen, 220 bird and 260 different plant species, making it a perfect location for getting away from the city and back to the "great outdoors." During your visit, you may encounter beavers, ospreys, frogs, bald eagles, chipmunks, warblers, coyotes, squirrels, moose, great blue herons, bears, pelicans, foxes, pileated woodpeckers, deer and kinglets. Along with a 150-year old tree, other plant species you may also see include: marsh marigold, western red lilies, orchids, goldenrod, dry ground cranberry, and asters.

Visitors are strongly encouraged to bring binoculars, bug repellant and sunscreen, as well as wear a hat when visiting the area. Please remember to watch out for and use caution around moose and bears. Do not travel alone and make noise while on the trails to avoid startling these great animals. Visitors are also reminded to watch out for falling tree limbs and trees during windy days as many of the trees in the sanctuary are getting older and are more susceptible to wind damage.
