Picture Pond Reserve

Picture Pond Reserve is a 30.6 acre parcel located in Sanford’s southern, 7-Ponds area, northwest from the Sanford Regional Airport, near the North Berwick boundary. The area drains to the Great Works River in the Salmon Falls Watershed. Obtained as mitigation for unavoidable impacts to other wetlands, a registered Conservation Declaration dictates that the property will be maintained in its natural condition forever. One of the few exceptions to the Declaration is the allowance, with Department of Environmental Protection and Army Corps of Engineer approval, is the creation of trails, boardwalks, and signage for the express purpose of promoting conservation, scientific, and educational values.

( More geologic, botanical, and zoological information to come. )
