You otter join Naturalist Andrea Higgins for a walk at the beautiful Bell’s Neck Conservation Lands to discover where river otters are living in Harwich. Search the trails for otter tracks, scat, and slides. Hike approximately 3 miles around the West Reservoir to find evidence of this elusive mammal while enjoying scenic views during the "golden hour," a time of soft warm light before sunset. You are invited to bring your binoculars for the hike as Bell's Neck is home to a diversity of birds and other wildlife.
This hike involves varying terrain including wooded paths, sandy trails, and some steeper inclines and declines.
