Dorothy Frances Rice Sanctuary for Wildlife Professional Review and Guide

"A 276-acre property laced with well-marked trails and stone walls. Red spruce, balsam fir, and northern hardwoods clothe this home to moose and beaver. Park clear of the locked gate on the wide gravel turnout. Trail maps may be available at the large sign. Walk eastward down level, grassy Rice Road flanked
by large white ash trees and sugar maples.

Soon reach a mowed side path on the left that leads to a beaver dam and pond built by the masterful rodents. Be alert for beavers and abundant bird life in the surrounding vegetation. Continue east on the road lined with red spruce, red maple, black cherry, and striped maple."
