Otter Sign Walk


You otter join Naturalist Andrea Higgins for a walk at the beautiful Bell’s Neck Conservation Lands to discover where river otters are living in Harwich. Search the trails for otter tracks, scat, and slides. Hike approximately 3 miles around the West Reservoir to find evidence of this elusive mammal while enjoying scenic views. You are invited to bring your binoculars for the hike as Bell's Neck is home to a diversity of birds and other wildlife.

This hike involves varying terrain including wooded paths, sandy trails, and some steeper inclines and declines.


Appropriate for ages 10+
