Robert P. Tristram Coffin Wild Flower Sanctuary
This sanctuary is one of seven owned by Native Plant Trust. Hilly woods, a brook, and 1,256 feet of sandy shore and tidal marsh make up the 177-acre area, which borders lovely Merrymeeting Bay, well-known for its diversity of waterfowl. Hike the mixed hardwood-conifer forest trails along the east side of the bay to a large, old stand of bigtooth aspen (Populus grandidentata) and fascinating freshwater estuary plants that are limited to this rare habitat type.
