Erwin S. Wilder WMA

About this Location

The Erwin S. Wilder Wildlife Management Area is a 465-acre tract of land with a variety of interesting habitats. Oak, maple and white pine trees are common in the upland areas. There is also a red maple swamp, surrounded by many fields, situated at the edge of an outwash plain. The area is located primarily in the northern section of the city of Taunton but is also partly in the town of Norton. The Wilder WMA abuts the much larger Hockomock WMA to the east, is bounded by the Snake River to the south, and lies only a short distance from Winnecunnet Pond (in Norton) to the west.
