Richard and Virginia Weinland Nature Study Area

This site encompasses more than forty acres of what used to be known as the Condon Forest.  Purchased for the Trust in 1990 by Helen Weinland in memory of her parents, it is intended for nature study by students in local schools and for recreational use by the public. Last cut over in the 1970s, a time not noted for proper forest management practices, the land is now wooded and and includes a variety of woodland spaces with both hard and soft wood stands, a brook, wetlands, and granite outcroppings on the ridge to the west.  All these features are visible along a one-mile+ walking trail through the property.   The Weinland property is located on the south side of  Gray Ridge Road in South Penobscot on Rt. 175 one mile south of the 175/177 intersection.
