This gently undulating, 30-acre tract has at least 39 species of wildflowers and a 5.3-acre stand of Great Laurel (Rhododendron maximum), a very rare species in Maine. The site borders a red maple swamp and wet meadow, and is listed on the Maine State Register as a Critical Area. To view the Great Laurel in bloom, plan to visit around the middle of July. Other plant species at the sanctuary include spicebush, clintonia, and painted trillium.
