Maine Audubon’s Mast Landing Sanctuary is 140 acres of diverse habitat and includes three miles of trails that wind along a stream and through orchards, fields and forest. The foundation of an old mill is visible where Mill Stream empties into the Harraseeket estuary. The name “Mast Landing” dates to the early 1700’s when the British Navy sought ship masts made from the massive white pines then growing in southern Maine forests. The sanctuary is open to the public, dawn to dusk, year-round. Dogs are not permitted.
Directions: From Main Street in Freeport, follow Bow Street for one mile. Turn left onto Upper Mast Landing Road. The Sanctuary is just up the hill on the right.
