Wells National Estuarine Research Reserve Park

Park Description

Wells Reserve protects 2,250 acres of fields, forests, freshwater wetlands, salt marsh and sandy beach on the densely populated southern coast of Maine. The reserve's diverse habitats support a broad variety of plants and animals, including rare species such as least terns, piping plovers, and slender blue flag iris. Reserve facilities are situated at historic Laudholm farm, settled in 1642 and occupied by only four families over the ensuing 350 years.
