Marks Cove Conservation Area

Marks Cove Conservation Area is a 118-acre conservation area, made up of parcels which are owned by the Wareham Land Trust, Buzzards Bay Coalition, Wildlands Trust, Mass Audubon, and the Town of Wareham. Acquired over the last 20 years, this quilt of protected land offers 2.5 miles of walking trails with various loops of easy to moderate difficulty. This property features a view of the upper portion of Buzzards Bay, where sandy forests intermingle with rich salt marshes.

This combination of uplands and salt marshes make for a fantastic habitat for many species, including the eastern box turtle, osprey, plovers, and terns. While exploring, keep an eye out for birds and other wildlife, as well as native plant species such as oak, pine, spicebush, clethra, and inkberry.
