Once a year, the Trustees of Reservations opens up the 140-acre Squibnocket Point Reservation for a guided walk, part of the Saving Special Places winter walking series. Led by Trustees Island educator Molly Peach, a group of about 20 people toured the two mile scenic shoreline. The land is privately held under a conservation restriction, and normally closed to the public.
The area is home to the rare Northeastern Beach Tiger Beetle, which is listed by the state as endangered. The beach, which has swirls of magnetite, a black magnetic mineral, offers a unique view of Noman's Land.
