Habitats and Wildlife

A grassy field on a sloping hill, bordered by oak trees. The property lies within the watershed of Hannah Eames Brook. Hannah Eames Brook flows together with Bares Brook to form Macombers Creek, which flows into the North River near its mouth.

Approximately 10 miles in length, the North River begins at the confluence of the Indian Head River (Hanover) and Herring Brook (Pembroke). From there it flows through the towns of Hanover, Pembroke, Marshfield, Norwell, and Scituate. It empties into the Atlantic Ocean between Third and Fourth Cliffs, draining approximately 59,000 acres along the way.
