Axelrod Preserve​

Axelrod Preserve is a 1.6-acre  wildlife sanctuary nestled between Mott Lane, the Moodus Reservoir boat launch road, and the shallow waters of that portion of the reservoir. It is a red maple wetland with an understory of blueberry, winterberry, and pepperbush, accessed from the boat launch road. Songbirds nest in the interior of the property, but the margin between the reservoir and the woodland is a haven for catbirds, kingbirds, herons, yellow-throated vireos. If lucky, you may spot a Virginia rail stalking along the muddy border. Mink, muskrats, and otter share the lush vegetative cover along the reservoir.​
