Looking for a place to enjoy nature?
North Cove Harbor Wetland Sanctuary and boardwalk is the perfect place to go.
The Sanctuary is a special place that should not be missed. This sanctuary is home to many different species of birds, fish, and mammals all year long! The 100-acre wetland has an 800-foot boardwalk with covered areas at the end for you to sit back and enjoy nature’s beauty while taking in what’s around you.
During winter, the site offers visitors great views. It becomes even more beautiful when transitioning from summer into fall. During the winter months, you can find Tri-colored Blue Herons, Great Egrets, Roseate Spoonbills, Brown Pelicans, and more just waiting for your glance. Depending on the rains you may even see an occasional blue crab looking for some baitfish.
We found a great site showing the different birds found around the boardwalk.
