About Elm Hill Wildlife Sanctuary
Elm Hill Wildlife Sanctuary is not yet open to the public. Access is restricted to those who have permission to enter the property.

Elm Hill Wildlife Sanctuary straddles the town line separating Brookfield and North Brookfield. It is located north of MA-9 between the centers of Brookfield and East Brookfield.

The majority of the forest at Elm Hill is transition hardwoods dominated by red oak and including maples and birches. The sanctuary’s landscape consists of a series of hills, a drumlin cluster that is topped by fields and former orchards; the views from the open hilltops are sweeping. Elm Hill is protected by an Agricultural Preservation Restriction (APR) held by the MA Department of Agricultural Resources. Most of the fields are leased to local farmers. Elm Hill supports populations of many wide-ranging animals, including black bear, fisher, and eastern coyote. The sanctuary’s early-successional habitats also support songbird species of conservation concern. Elm Hill is also the site of Mass Audubon’s 100-year demonstration of bird-friendly forestry practices.
