About The Sherburne Estate:

Located off Coburn Road, the Sherburne Estate and habitat is an 80-acre parcel consists of a combination of woodlands, marshes, a beaver pond, and a meadow maintained to support birds, butterflies, and other wildlife.

It was donated in 1999 by the Sherburne Family in memory of Maxwell and Bernice Sherburne.

Trails are open daily, dawn to dusk, and there is no fee to visit. Look for deer, songbirds, beavers, turtles, muskrats, ducks, geese, and soaring hawks. Thirty species of birds have recently been seen here, including a Bald Eagle. The woodlands include mature hemlock, beech groves, with pine, oak, and red maple.

Sherburne Nature Center activities are open to all who are interested. Unless otherwise noted, all activities will take place at Sherburne Estate and will go rain or shine. In extreme weather conditions, activities will be canceled. No reservations or fees required. You simply show up. Children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.
