A meandering paddle through Maine’s largest salt marsh. Paddling through the heart of the Scarborough Marsh Estuary provides a unique opportunity to explore one of Maine’s most productive ecosystems. Although salt marshes account for less than 1 percent of the state’s landmass, they provide critical habitat for sustenance, refuge, and nesting to an abundance of wildlife. The estuary’s broad, sweeping oxbows, serpentine bends, and shallow channels invite investigation and discovery.
