Some 1100 feet of pondshore are conserved here, as well as sloping grasslands, salt marsh and a freshwater pond. It is a pocket of pastoral land in an otherwise suburbanized area. Notable here are the short-distance views of Felix Neck on the opposite shore of Majors Cove, the long-distance views of Cape Poge and the thick patch of switchgrass near the water’s edge. Rare plants include eastern gama-grass, whose spreading the land bank is seeking to encourage via proximate patch mowing.
