Visitor Center

Come and explore mid-summer blooming wildflowers with “Boot” Boutwell. The Reserve has seven miles of trails through a rich variety of habitats, but we won’t have to walk very far to see a host of flowers. Among the highlights of the walk will be our strolls through the meadows and wet meadows where we expect to see a host of flowers in bloom. We will enjoy their beauty, learn some basic identification characteristics, and also learn some wildflower natural history and lore.

The Wells Reserve operates in accordance with orders from the Governor of Maine and instructions from the Maine Center for Disease Control. Reserve leadership will monitor, evaluate, and adapt as needed to ensure all programs operate safely and effectively.

Please have a mask on hand if you are not vaccinated and/or feel safer being masked in a group setting.

Please note: Program fee does not include site admission fee.
