This pristine 65-acre sanctuary on the Presumpscot River estuary is headquarters for the Maine Audubon Society and a great place for a winter stroll. You can hike more than 2 miles of trails that weave through open fields, meadows, and woodlands, and along tidal shoreline and salt marshes. As you might guess, this is a bird-lover’s paradise. On your winter walk, you’re likely to hear-and see-flocks of Canada geese and a variety of waterfowl. Join one of the center’s guided night walks and listen for the home hour of an owl. The environmental center is a good place to hang out; there are exhibits, a library and a children’s discovery area, along with hot drinks and snacks.
