Earth Garden VI: Porter Preserve (BRLT)

yet another view of the river

A photo series from a visit to another Boothbay Region Land Trust property, on Barter’s Island, in Boothbay, Maine: Porter Preserve (PDF), about 21 acres along the Sheepscot and Back rivers. The loop trail is a little more than 1/2 a mile with at least eight opportunities (some loop trails in their own right) to walk out to views along the way, many of which would be a great place for a picnic on a hot day. There is also a small sandy beach.

The views of the Sheepscot River are exquisite and the trail quite varied, through woods, to outcroppings, in shrubby uplands, and including a memorial grove and an active wharf.  This is one of my favourites of the BRLT properties.

Below are some photos from this “garden” spot.
