With 2,047 feet of frontage on the Charles, you would expect the Peters Reservation to have superior wildlife and bird-watching, and you won’t be disappointed. Muskrat, otter, raccoon, weasel, deer, kingfishers, hawks, great blue herons, ruffed grouse, and a wide assortment of waterfowl can be seen. Because so few people come here, the chances of spotting wildlife are good. Peters Reservation is accessible only by canoe. Highlights: Walk along the Charles, red pine plantation.
