Abstract

Article on the Waterboro Barrens, a 2,140-acre Nature Conservancy preserve in western York County and the largest and best preserved barrens remaining in Maine. Deposited by the meltwater from the receding glaciers that covered Maine 12,000 years ago, the sand and gravel at Waterboro Barrens is up to 90 feet deep. Once viewed as the potential site of a major housing project in the early 1990s, the site became the objective of what was until then the Nature Conservancy's largest and most ambitious fundraising project: a $3.5-million campaign that grew to $5 million.
