Natural Resources

Devens boasts healthy, resilient places that are accessible to all residents and visitors. These areas extend beyond our boundaries and are part of regionally important wildlife habitats such as the Oxbow National Wildlife Refuge and numerous land trust holdings. Devens’ commitment to sustainable reuse of former military sites has minimized encroachment into these areas and maintained them as attractive community assets with access to trails networks, boating, hunting, fishing, and other outdoor recreation in nearly every direction.
