Rockery Trail Professional Review and Guide
"Descend from a drumlin field through swamp habitats to a pond and enchanting rock garden. The Rockery Trail begins at the edge of a grassy field next to the Audubon offices and resource center complex, which sits on a drumlin. All trails at the sanctuary descend this hill formed of mineral deposits left by glaciers of the last ice age, 15,000 years ago. Special Features: Audubon bird observatory and program center, and Fantastic rock garden and grotto, and marsh boardwalk."
