Description

Located on the Bagaduce River, Maine Coast Heritage Trust's 49-acre Tills Point Preserve was acquired in 2006. Visitors interested in exploring Tills Point can follow a 0.5-mile meandering path that ends at a small bench near the shore.

Due to the diverse forest, consisting of pine, red oak, and spruce-fir stands, the preserve is home to nearly three dozen species of breeding songbirds. The Tills Point shoreline is also an ideal location for observing shorebirds, seals, ospreys, and bald eagles. The view from the south shore encompasses a broad array of undeveloped, protected shoreline with broad mudflats at low tide.
