  • The area around Saxis is part of the Saxis Wildlife Management Area, which is predominately tidal marshland totaling approx. 5,678 acres.  The area is untouched and primarily in its natural state with no development. The management area is an excellent area to see wildlife and bird watching in its natural habitat.  Kayaking in the back creek can also provide wonderful opportunities to view birds and waterfowl that nest in the area.

  • The shoreline of Saxis island provides the Sea Glass Hunter an opportunity to collect glass washed in from the tides.  The optimal time to hunt for sea glass is after a coastal storm when winds churns the bottom of the bay and new finds can wash ashore.  There is parking available at Dennis Lane and Matthews Road to comb the area for sea glass.

Come out and meet your neighbors and enjoy all of the many things that make the Town of Saxis a great place to live!
