Native Plant Walk: Coffin Wildflower Reservation
with Heather McCargo
The Coffin Wildflower Reservation in Woolwich is one of nine owned by the Native Plant Trust (formerly New England Wildflower Society). Hilly woods, a brook, and 1,256 feet of sandy shore and tidal marsh make up the 177-acre area, which borders lovely Merrymeeting Bay, well-known for its diversity of waterfowl. Hike the woodland trails along the east side of the bay to a large, old stand of bigtooth aspen and fascinating freshwater estuary plants that are limited to this rare habitat type.
This program is co-sponsored by the Native Plant Trust and Wild Seed Project, and will be led by Heather McCargo of Wild Seed Project.

From awareness to action, Project WILD's hands-on approach to learning engages students in investigating the world around them, connecting them to conservation careers, and participating in solid STEM activities.
The NEW REVISED AND UPDATED Curriculum and Activity Guide can easily be adapted to meet the learning requirements for academic disciplines ranging from science and environmental education to social studies, math, and language arts.
Educators may choose one or more Project WILD activities to teach a concept or skill. The activities may be integrated into existing courses of study, or an entire set of activities may serve effectively as the basis for a specific course.
WILD workshops are designed so teachers become familiar with the activities and their multidisciplinary use in the classroom.
- include background information about Maine's wildlife and natural resources
- provide hands-on WILD experience with activities that address every subject and skill area
- assist participants with integration of WILD activities into their curriculums.
The activities found in Project WILD curriculum guide are intended for use in both classroom and informal settings.
