SLT “Osprey Marsh” Visit

The Sippican Lands Trust (SLT) cordially invites the public to visit our newly acquired property “Osprey Marsh” on Saturday, July 26 from 11:00 am – 1:00 pm. “Osprey Marsh” was recently gifted to the SLT by the Howland family of Marion, and is a 19.8 acre waterfront property on Planting Island Cove. Please join us in celebrating the opening of this beautiful piece of land that showcases upland forest, wetland and marsh habitats.

Executive Director Robin Shields, Head Steward Yelena Sheynin, and a rotating group of Board of Director Members from the Sippican Lands Trust will be on site during the duration of the event to greet you and answer any questions you may have about the property or our non-profit organization. A primary trail from the parking area to the shore is available to explore. The end of the trail offers a view of Planting Island Cove and beyond. Sturdy, waterproof boots are recommended as the trail cuts through marshy areas. “Osprey Marsh” is located on Point Road on the right hand side before you reach the main entrance to Piney Point. It is just beyond SLT’s “Howland Marsh” on the same road. There is a trail head sign for identification and a small lot parking.

Founded in 1974, the Sippican Lands Trust strives to acquire and protect natural areas in Marion. Its purpose is to conserve land, protect habitat, provide public access to the beautiful, protected lands of our town and offer events for nature lovers of all ages!

Please do not hesitate to contact SLT Executive Director Robin Shields at 508-748-3080 or online at if you have any questions. We hope to see you there!
