Ashumet’s most spectacular feature is Grassy Pond, a globally rare ecosystem characterized by the species of rare wildflowers that bloom along its sandy shores during low water in late summer and early fall; the pink Plymouth gentian is particularly beautiful. Don’t be surprised by the flurry of activity in the small barn from May through August; it’s just the sanctuary’s resident barn swallow colony. As its name suggests, Ashumet Holly is well known for its 65 varieties of holly trees planted throughout the sanctuary.
