Tiny building, enormous beauty and benefits! The Audubon Society offers weekly guided bird walks, and great trails for hiking, biking, and self-guided birding. Canoe and kayak rentals, moonlight paddles -- nature programs, excursions, and workshops for all ages. Excursions monthly to Stratton Island, where Audubon volunteers monitor piping plovers, least lterns, and other endangered species. One year a yellow-nosed albatross... More

This is my favorite place to stop on my way to Pine Pt. If you love birds, plants and nature this place is for you. Stay for 15 minutes or stay for hours you will be glad you did. Maine Audubon has been educating people of all ages about the flora and fauna of salt marshes for many years. I... More

Did the group canoe tour. No experience needed but make sure you can get in and out of a canoe in the water. Not for kids under 4-5. Plan to work at rowing and listen to the instructions. Staff was friendly, knowledgeable, gives pointers. Wear a hat, bring water, sun screen, put your wrist in the water if you get... More

We had the most amazing guided canoe tour during our summer vaca to Maine this year. It was lead by a volunteer naturalist who pointed out birds, and other wild life as well as served as a canoe guide, coach, and safety officer. She was fabulous. The highlight of the trip, though was a young adult seal who surfaced just... More

I would have given this place a 4 or 5 star rating because of its beauty, but you have to come prepared. There is a fee for the canoe tour, but the walking tours are free. We did not try the canoe tour. Please be careful if you try the shorter walking tour starting across the street from their office.... More

Along with admiring the birds and enjoying a peaceful canoe through the marsh, my boyfriend and I had a great experience with the staff. They were thorough at explaining the trail, and shared some incredibly useful tips. Not only that, they helped us into and out of the canoe, and lugged it up the shore. We didn't have to carry...

We took out a canoe after excellent instructions from the staff. They also placed our cellphones in a sturdy waterproof bag and explained what to do in the event of an emergency. All in all a very peaceful, quiet and relaxing experience, and a lovely method of seeing nesting birds up close in their natural habitat. Also, the gift shop... More
