Offering spectacular views of coastal salt marsh, this 24-acre preserve was named for founding Board member Emerita Madelyn Marx. With forested sections as well as thick low brush, this preserve provides considerable habitat to coastal birds as well as waterfowl. Herons and ducks can often be spotted here. The property is connected to the Sea Road Preserve via the Town-owned Bridle Path, and contiguous to Rachel Carson National Wildlife Refuge property. The walking path is easy, yet sensitive, terrain.
Kennebunk Land Trust (KLT) was established in 1972. Kennebunk Land Trust’s mission is to permanently conserve and steward land to benefit natural and human communities. Since its inception, the Trust has worked to protect over 3,400 acres of land through ownership, conservation easement and partnership. To find out about volunteer opportunities with the Trust, please contact them using the information below.
Trail Etiquette – while enjoying the preserve, please help us protect their natural resources by keeping these things in mind:
Trail users should be prepared for inclement weather, wear appropriate footwear and clothing, and bring along water and snacks. Southern Maine does have deer ticks that carry Lyme disease; hikers should always perform “tick checks” on themselves and pets following a trip into the woods.
