The information for these pages on Great Wass Island Preserve
came from the preserve guide pamphlet which is available at
the registration box in the parking lot at the preserve.
Printing of the original guide was made possible by
donations made in the memory of Samuel F. Morse.

Great Wass Island Preserve is a spectacular 1,540-acre tract composing almost all of the southern part of the town of Beals in eastern Maine. It was acquired by the Maine Chapter of The Nature Conservancy in 1978. Relatively untouched by man's presence, it has many outstanding natural features, many of which have been recognized by the state Critical Areas Program.
