Cambridge's Wild Side!

A Wildlife Exploration of the Alewife Brook Reservation.

Eastern Cottontail

Your safari begins just outside the Alewife T station, a stark concrete structure covered in graffiti, next to a noisy highway. You wouldn't believe that another world awaits you on the other side of the station. Bunnies play tag. Mommy duck takes care of her babies. A graceful swan dances a ballet. These are just a few of the 50 species you'll find at the wildlife sanctuary. This place is a photographer's dream. Each day there was something new and exciting to take a photo of. I will be back with seasonal updates.





Here are are some useful links to better explore the park.
