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."

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."
