About this Location

Connor Pond is located southeast of Petersham. The Massachusetts Audubon Society Rutland Brook Sanctuary is on the east side of the pond. Harvard Forest is north and east of the pond and the Swift River Reservation is south of the pond.

Combined with neighboring conservation lands, Rutland Brook Wildlife Sanctuary is part of one of the most extensive parcels of uninterrupted protected land in central Massachusetts.
