Meander along the trails of a historical 2,250-acre protected area with a diversity of ecologically important estuarine habitats. The Wells National Estuarine Research Reserve, as it is officially known, is an oasis of tranquility just a short distance from the busy US 1 coastal corridor. This beautiful property—a restored saltwater farm known as Laudholm to many—encompasses 2,250 acres of diverse wildlife habitat, from grasslands and woodlands to salt marshes, dunes, and sandy beach, and spans the estuaries of the Webhannet River, the Little River (fed by the Merriland River and Branch Brook), and the Ogunquit River.
