Osborn Finch Wildlife Sanctuary
Waldoboro, ME 04572
In 1992, The Nature Conservancy transferred the 11-acre Osborn Finch Wildlife Sanctuary on Waldoboro’s Dutch Neck to the Pemaquid Watershed Association (PWA). This preserve includes 2 acres of grassy field and 9 acres of moss-draped woodlands boasting some of the oldest white and red spruce trees in the Midcoast area. The half mile long trail from the parking area to the flat-rock banks of the Medomak River makes this an excellent picnic spot and an ideal walk for all ages. Explore the tidal marshland and the coastal geology visible from exposed bedrock, large granite boulders, and moraines. Overlooking the preserve’s beautiful 300 feet of Medomak River shorefront is a rustic cabin available for public overnight stays on a donation basis from mid-May to September by reservation only.
