Salty Air Scenic Slide Shows

Skunknett River Wildlife Sanctuary, Osterville – Slideshow

Skunknett River Wildlife Sanctuary
Written by Brian Tarcy

OSTERVILLE – Off Bumps River Road is the 149-acre Skunknett River Wildlife Sanctuary, an incredibly peaceful walk.

We found ourselves wandering the trails and finding all sorts of neat things in this peaceful refuge in which, we later learned, there is an Atlantic White Cedar Swamp regenerating.

Inside the refuge, we were doing the same.

  • Love your walks, Brian, but think it would be very much appreciated if you gave some pointers for finding trails — or even links to maps? I must have driven right by this one!
