A really nice place to spend the day. The preserve center has a small gift shop and a lot of taxidermy animals to study, as well as an upper deck with a spotting scope that overlooks the marshes. There are a few miles of mixed trails throughout the preserve, some of them are actually boardwalks through the wetlands, but they all make for great photography sites. While not technically a hiking/camping destination Beaver Meadow Audubon Nature Center is definitely worth a day's visit, especially in the Summertime when the songbirds and wildflowers are innumerable.
