Woodland to be protected, added to wildlife sanctuary

A 31-acre Marshfield woodland that contains the headwaters of Hannah Eames Brook, a tributary of the North River, is poised to be protected and added to the North River Wildlife Sanctuary.

Mass Audubon plans to close Friday on the parcel, which is owned by a private realty trust. Known as the Spring Street Woodlands, the land has frontage on Spring Street and directly abuts the existing sanctuary.
