On December 5th, Margaret Gerber, Stewardship Manager for the Brunswick-Topsham Land Trust, led a flock from the Brunswick region Thursday Hikers group on a hike/snowshoe/ski trek at Woodward Point Preserve in Brunswick. At 87.5 acres, Woodward Point is one of the largest undeveloped parcels of land in northern Casco Bay, a designated estuary of national significance. The preserve cradles all or part of two commercially important shellfish beds and is surrounded by critical habitat for waterfowl and wading birds. Woodward Point’s fields are also home to a healthy population of bobolinks in the summer. The preserve was protected earlier this year as a joint venture between Maine Coast Heritage Trust and Brunswick-Topsham Land Trust. It was a spectacular winter day on the Maine coast to be outside.
