About Broadmoor Wildlife Sanctuary:

We will walk/hike along some of Broadmoor’s nine miles of walking trails through a variety of field, woodland, and wetland habitats. A quarter-mile, universally accessible
trail and boardwalk along the bank of Indian Brook and over the marsh offers great opportunities for birdwatching, photography, and sketching. To enjoy this site in the winter, bring your snowshoes or cross-country skis. Stroll along the edge of Indian Brook, which flows into the Charles River at the sanctuary, and look for wood ducks and signs of beavers and otters from the 110-foot-long bridge. Take a tape-recorded tour of
the sanctuary’s nature center, which is complete with solar heating and composting toilets, to learn about our “green” architecture <http://www.massaudubon.org/Nature_Connection/Sanctuaries/Broadmoor/greenbuildin
