SLT Leads Superb-Owl Walk

Join Sippican Lands Trust (SLT) for a winter “Superb-Owl” Walk in honor of Super Bowl Sunday on February 3. This crepuscular walk in the woods will start at 4:00 pm and end by 5:30 pm back in time to leisurely head off for the Patriots-Rams’ kick-off.

The walk will start behind the Marion Institute and Baldwin Brother parking lot located at 202 Spring Street in Marion. The walk will head to the railroad bed and paths behind the Marion Institute and Baldwin Brother and continue down the railroad path within walking distance of some Sippican Lands Trust properties as well as town open space properties in this forested area. While hearing an owl early in the evening would be nice, it isn’t a sure thing. Owls are busy with their nesting time and hopefully calling more than often.

The walk is free and no registration is required. The walk is weather dependent and participants should be dressed for muddy paths and/or frozen stretches. Headlamps or flashlights are suggested for the walk back to the parking area and the walk will cover approximately 1.5 to 2 miles depending upon the pace of participants. If the Superb-Owl Walk is canceled due to inclement weather, then information will be posted to SLT’s website and Facebook page. For more information about this walk contact SLT at, 508-748-3080, or visit

Thank you to the Marion Institute for permission to park in their lot for this walk.
