Our Wildlife

What kinds of creatures live in the Assabet River refuge? The Friends are assembling a catalog of the animals that call the refuge home.

Our catalog is far from complete and we have some way to go. If you have images of wildlife on the Refuge you'd like to share, please contact us at

Most of our images are from photographer Gary Freedman and from the Assabet Keeping Track team. For some history of the Assabet Keeping Track project see here and for additional photographs from the project see here.
