"As you explore the sanctuary, mallards, Canada geese, osprey, or a horseshoe crab may accompany you on wide level trails along beach and salt marsh, through open fields and woodlands.

Birders describe this Massachusetts Audubon Society property as one of the prime island locales for observing more than 100 species of native birds. Felix neck also provides an assortment of naturalist-led activities, from bird and wildlife identification walks to seashore explorations and kayak trips. Apply plenty of mosquito repellent."

"Massachusetts Audubon sanctuaries are great places to visit, and Felix Neck, located on a thumb of land poking north into Sengekontacket Pond, is no exception.

The well-maintained trails, all wheelchair accessible, lead to a variety of habitats, including forest, meadow, salt marsh, and freshwater ponds, providing visitors with ample opportunities for nature study as well as exercise. Also at the sanctuary is the Jessica Hancock Trail, a self-guided nature walk with an accompanying brochure, which is described previously. Note: Picnicking is permitted only in the parking area."

"This lovely self-guided nature trail visits a variety of habitats, each with its own special array of native and nonnative plants. If you have time, consider also doing the “Woodland Wonderland” walk, described next in this book.

Boldface numbers in the description below refer to numbered markers along the trail, which are keyed to text in a brochure available at the visitor center; some of the markers may be missing or hard to see. Note: Picnicking is permitted only in the parking area."
