Habitats and Wildlife

This grassy property with rolling hills is part of the Weymouth Back River watershed. The open fields are bordered with oak, cedar and maple trees. The wetlands and streams here flow into Bear Swamp, and onward to the Fresh River, and eventually into the Back River.

The Weymouth Back River rises from several ponds and swamps, including Whitman Pond in Weymouth. It flows for about 10 miles, and empties into the Atlantic Ocean at Hingham Bay, just south of Grape Island and Slate Island.
