About Eagle Reserve Conservation Area
Eagle Reserve Conservation Area is a 139-acre mix of woods and wetlands, including a floating Spruce-Tamarack Bog and a Level Bog, which is a complex community that floats upon a large beaver-influenced pond. Thanks to a Massachusetts Recreational Trails Program Grant, our new David H. Small Community Trail provides people with limited mobility access to the beauty of this amazing wildlife refugeā€”a patchwork of ponds and wetlands providing habitat and refuge for wildlife in a sheltered wetland where no signs of human habitation are visible. A breeding pair of bald eagles has nested near the waterside in past years. Rare pied-billed grebes are also found on the reserve, as well as blue heron, Canada geese, bald eagles, ravens, mallards, hooded mergansers, black ducks, and a rare juvenile golden eagle.

The land also serves as a natural classroom for the nearby Royalston Community School in partnership with Mount Grace’s TerraCorps program.

Eagle Reserve is open to the public for hiking, nature watching, hunting, fishing, canoeing/kayaking, and has an accessible trail (David H. Small Community Nature Trail).
