Cambridge Woodlands Preserve
Cambridge Woodlands Preserve is located on Leavitt Road in Cambridge. It offers opportunity for quiet exploration, wildlife watching, and hunting by permission in season. White-tailed deer are abundant, and the forest also provides shelter for other mammals and a characteristic bird community of central Maine's forests. An old woods road bisects the property’s meadow, then travels through mixed woods and hemlock stands where it loops alongside a small stream. Eagle Scout Josh Emery and his Boy Scout Troop initiated a trail system in 2015 which was expanded by volunteer Steward Frank Hayman with help from our Stewardship committee during the last several years. Future plans include a picnic area in the meadow near the entrance.
The 90-acre Cambridge Woodlands Preserve was a 2013 gift from Jack Daggitt.
