The 185-acre John Arthur Woollam Preserve consists of 4,300 feet of stunning rocky shoreline with huge boulders and coastal wetlands, and a coniferous forest grading into northern hardwoods. The preserve offers significant shoreline for migratory and breeding birds and habitat for plant species such as Houghton's goldenrod.
Warm waters near the shore yield masses of flying insects, providing a tasty feast for migrating birds stopping through the preserve. Shoreline conservation is one of the main goals of this preserve.
Visitors might also see a variety of animals including the loon, pileated woodpecker, osprey, deer and several species of neotropical migratory songbirds such as the American redstart and magnolia warbler.
