Great Meadows National Wildlife Refuge Professional Review and Guide

"Great Meadows National Wildlife Refuge covers a large tract of wetlands abutting the Concord and Sudbury Rivers. The diversity of habitat found here helps make this one of the best inland birding areas in Massachusetts. A total of 221 species of birds have been seen here in the past ten years.

Great Meadows was first established in the 1940s when a Concord hunter named Samuel Hoar made the first gift of land. Today it is managed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and has grown to more than 3,000 acres. The Dike Trail offers the best viewing by foot to see the wide assortment of birds that nest or stop here on migration."
