Overview

Historically, Great Meadows totaled as much as five square miles in area, which helped it become a mecca for birdlife, which, until the 20th century, was more diverse than any Connecticut site. Although greatly reduced in size, it still offers remarkably diverse habitats and species. The area north and west of Lewis Gut contains the only unditched high marsh left in the state. It encourages transient shorebirds and waterfowl to breed and feed.
