This is a partial/incomplete listing as I have not yet explored this property.

There are trails and likely fisherman’s paths at the Wright Preserve though their length is unknown at this time.

From the Wyndham Land Trust site, “The preserve has varied habitats including flooded forest, a hay field, and an old field full of wildflowers. A young forest has reclaimed old gravel operation. The hay filed is mowed after July 15 each year to allow grassland birds to finish their nesting. Two wildlife food plots, sunflower and sorghum, are planted in the old field each spring.  The southern boundary is formed by an 800-foot long stretch of the Mashmoquet Brook.”

History:

Protected since 1980 when it was donated by Ann A. Wright.
