Davidson Nature Preserve – 97 acres Taber Hill Road

Another property managed by the Kennebec Land Trust, here are blueberry fields open for picking, mixed woodlands, and a heron rookery situated above a beaver bog.  In addition to the many songbirds nesting here, the preserve is an important stop-over point for spring and fall long-distant migrants, especially warblers.  Off road parking is available. 

Directions: From Augusta take Route 201 north to Vassalboro. Turn east on the Bog Road for approximately 2.2 miles to the intersection of the Taber Hill Road. Turn left (north) on Taber Hill Road for approximately 1 mile. Look for the KLT sign and registration box at the wooden gate on the left (west) side of Taber Hill Road. No blazed trails, but short, easy walks on paths from Taber Hill Road to blueberry fields and the north end of the bog.

No motor vehicles or bicycles are permitted (the existing snowmobile trail is exempt) and no dogs are allowed as they disturb ground nesting birds (hunting dogs are exempt).
