Nature and Trails

Image: CardinalBird Watching in Ocean Park
Many years ago Genevieve (Mrs. Phillip) Webb, compiled a detailed listing of birds that can be seen in Ocean Park. Mrs. Webb was an authority on local ornithology, had been a member of the Maine Audubon Society and was a director of the Maine Chapter of the Nature Conservancy.

Ocean Park Plants
Theodore Wells of the faculty of Milton (Mass.) Academy, a member of the New England Botanical Club and an authority on our local botany, compiled a list of plants that can be found in Ocean Park. Mr. Wells, assisted by Dorothy E. Wells, published a brochure "The Plants of Ocean Park." This brochure became known as "Trails, Plants, and Birds in Ocean Park, Maine" and was updated in 2014 - 2015 by Bethany Nichols and John Bird.

Trails in Ocean Park
In 1963, Ocean Park was designated as an official Game Preserve and Game Sanctuary. "No person shall at any time hunt, pursue, molest, trap, catch, shoot at, kill, or destroy and wild bird or wild animal within the boundaries of Ocean Park." In keeping with this protection, pets should be leashed or clearly under an owner's control and waste material should be removed.

There are several Ocean Park trails. Three are open to the public year round and are described below in the brochure "Trails, Plants and Birds in Ocean Park, Maine." Other trails on Camp Oceanwood's property are reserved for horses and the public is asked, for safety reasons, to avoid these trails from Memorial Day to Labor Day.

Download the brochure Trails, Plants, and Birds in Ocean Park, Maine for more information and a detailed list of birds, plants, and a map of the trails in Ocean Park updated as of 2014 by Bethany Nichols and John Bird.
