Morse Pond Preserve, Georgetown

IMG_3522-001

This 280-acre preserve protects significant wetland habitats and maintains traditional hunting opportunities. Great birding and wildlife sighting opportunities abound, as well as the challenge of a rolling landscape for exercise and enjoyment through the seasons. For the protection of sensitive habitat and wildlife, no pets are permitted.

Morse Pond Preserve connects to other conserved properties, including Reid State Park. All of these protected properties combine to form a block of nearly 1,800 acres of permanently conserved natural lands. The bulk of Morse Pond Preserve was purchased in four stages by KELT between 2011 and 2014 with funding from the Maine Natural Resource Conservation Program.
