The Beautiful Colours Of Fore River Sanctuary In Maine Pictured On An Acrylic Fridge Magnet
The gold, red, and green of autumn in the Fore River Sanctuary are captured on this acrylic fridge magnet from the catalogues of World Wide Gifts. The Fore River Sanctuary is an area of eighty five acres in Portland, Maine which are protected and provide a home to several species of wildlife, especially birds. The area was originally owned by the Audubon Society which is an environmental organisation named after the ornithologist John James Audubon, who is perhaps best known for his paintings in his book 'Birds of America'. One of the founders of the Audubon society, Tom Jewell, donated the land to Portland Trails.
Visiting The Fore River Sanctuary In Maine
Portland Trails intend the Fore River Sanctuary to be completely accessible to the public; it is free to enter the sanctuary and the terrain is easily crossed. Visitors can take a trail to view Jewell Falls which is the only natural waterfall in Portland. There are many trails throughout the sanctuary including Fore River Sanctuary mountain bike trail for those on two wheels. This trail includes several bridges and sets of steps. For those on foot another trail to try in the area is The Fore River Trail which runs along the gravel and boardwalks of the Fore River, outside of the sanctuary boundaries. However you explore the area it will be a beautiful journey as can be seen from the picture of the Fore River Sanctuary, Maine on our attractive acrylic fridge magnet.
