The 55-year-old Rachel Carson National Wildlife Refuge was established to protect the salt marshes and estuaries of southern Maine, which are home to the state’s many migratory birds. The 14,600-acre park includes beaches, meadows, salt marshes and forests along 80 kilometers of coastline through York and Cumberland counties.
The wildlife refuge is named after world-renowned marine biologist, author and environmentalist Rachel Carson, who started the modern environmental movement.
