And the Waterboro Barrens, a 2,140-acre Nature Conservancy Preserve, offers miles of trails to explore. It’s considered the state’s best and largest example of a preserved pitch pine barrens.The habitat created by the forest and wetlands, including Round Pond and Little Teeny Poverty Pond, supports rare and endangered insects, plants, birds and other wildlife species such as Blanding Turtles and Wood Turtles. Six rare species of moths and butterflies are part of a total of 364 species found here. And the globally rare dragonfly, the ringed boghaunter, is known to emerge here in early May.
