The Attleboro Land Trust is proud to preserve the pristine wetland meadow of the 48-acre Anthony Lawrence Wildlife Preserve, donated by Anthony Lawrence in 1994. Additional gifts by Donna Madden in honor of her uncle Peter Halko, and by David W. Parfitt, have expanded the total acreage protected to 57 acres. Seven Mile River can be seen snaking through the meadow. The Lawrence Wildlife Preserve abuts the Hill Roberts Elementary School site in South Attleboro. The property is accessible from the end of Hope Avenue, which runs off Newport Avenue across from the South Attleboro American Legion. The Seven Mile River, flowing out of Orrs Pond, runs right through the middle of the parcel, then joins with the Ten Mile River. Because most of this property is wetlands, human use has been limited, and birds make the property a sanctuary. Osprey have been sighted here.
