Outdoor Activities

A stunning progression of pristine wetlands and primordial marshes, the Great Meadows National Wildlife Refuge skims the rivers of Concord and Sudbury, covering more than 250 acres (100 hectares) of diverse habitats. A safe haven for native flora and fauna, the reserve is primarily known as a birdwatching destination that is home to everything from Blue-winged teals and black ducks to mallards and wood ducks. Also sheltering a number of mammals, Great Meadows bustles with red fox, cottontail rabbits, squirrels, weasels, beavers and White-tailed deer. The Sudbury and Concord units are two of the park's premier attractions that feature visitor centers and feeding grounds.
