About Eastern Point Wildlife Sanctuary

See all hotspots at Eastern Point Wildlife Sanctuary

What Eastern Point Wildlife Sanctuary, 51 acres, lacks in space it more than makes up for in views and wildlife. Located on a peninsula near the historic Eastern Point Lighthouse, the small sanctuary is a hot spot for butterflies and seabirds at particular times of the year. Look no further than the parking lot for unsurpassed coastal seascape.

The trail at the sanctuary is 0.5 miles.

Sanctuary Highlights

  • Short loop trail through a deciduous forest (note that trails may be wet in the spring). The entrance is across from a cul-de-sac named Aileen Terrace.
  • Grouping of migrating monarchs sometimes seen resting in the trees in September.
  • Seasonal walks and programs conducted through Ipswich River Wildlife Sanctuary.
