Rachel Carson National Wildlife Refuge Professional Review and Guide

"Walk through upland oak and pine forests, tidal estuaries, and salt marshes in a wildlife refuge named for Rachel Carson, the renowned biologist, author, and environmentalist.

The eleven geographic areas of the Rachel Carson National Wildlife Refuge (RCNWR), which range along 50 miles of the Maine coast from Kittery to Cape Elizabeth, protect a wide variety of habitats important to migratory birds and other wildlife, including tidal estuaries, salt marshes, barrier beaches and dunes, coastal meadows, rocky coast, and forested uplands. The 5,600-acre refuge, established in 1966 with assistance from the state of Maine, is managed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service."
