Hughlett Point Natural Area Preserve
Hughlett Point Natural Area Preserve contains several excellent examples of tidal and non-tidal wetlands, as well as exemplary undeveloped beaches, dunes, and upland forests. The preserve supports the federally threatened northeastern beach tiger beetle and other rare invertebrates. Hughlett Point is an important wintering area for migrating waterfowl and songbirds, and provides habitat for bald eagles, osprey and northern harriers.
Hughlett Point Natural Area Preserve is open to the public. Facilities include parking, trails, a woodland boardwalk, wildlife viewing platforms, and interpretive signs.
Part or all of the preserve may be periodically closed for resource protection or resource management activities. Please call before visiting.
