Join Sippican Lands Trust and walk leader, Alan Harris, for a mid-winter walk at Peirson Woods on Sunday, February 11 starting at 1:00 pm and catch striking views of Sippican Harbor from the viewing platform overlooking Blankenship Cove. On a clear day, Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the northern Elizabeth Islands can be seen from the viewing platform at Peirson Woods.
