Heads of Estuaries

Located in Washington County, between Gouldsboro and Machias Bay, the Heads of Estuaries includes more than 3,000 acres of coastal conservation land available for birdwatching, hiking, hunting, wildlife observation, and other outdoor recreational activities.  These conserved lands also provide important coastal access for commercial fishermen. The Land for Maine’s Future Board supported the acquisition of 566 acres within the Heads of Estuaries in 2009 and 2010.
