Webb Nature Sanctuary

webb creekviewThe Webb Nature Sanctuary offers a lot of nature in a small space. Its 20 acres include a mix of woodland, meadow, and stream valley. These are home to nesting songbirds from the tropics; amphibians, including spotted salamanders and woodfrogs; gray and red fox; flying squirrels, and other mammals; reptiles, such as box turtles, five-lined skinks, and black-rat snakes; and a variety of butterflies, dragonflies, and other insects.
