Flowers and foliage abound in the native plant border that welcomes visitors to the reserve. York County Master Gardener volunteers have nurtured the garden over a decade to form a gorgeous display.
This spring, they added new plant identification signs to the garden. The signs were made for us by Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens and underwritten by a memorial gift.
The family of Nat “Buddy” Wright, a docent and volunteer here back in the 1990s, felt this tribute was a perfect fit. We’re pleased that Buddy’s interest in teaching others about nature is being extended through these signs, which give the common and scientific names for almost 50 species:

Jeremy Miller embraces the long view. His projects depend on it. As lead technician for our system-wide monitoring program (SWMP), as state coordinator for monitoring marine invasives (MIMIC), and as lead scientist on the reserve’s larval fish study, Jeremy adds pieces to puzzles without predefined shape. He knows that patterns begin to emerge only after years of methodical, meticulous data collection.
