Welcome to the Wildes Road Wildlife Management Area!
The Bowdoinham Wildlife Management Area is a beautiful stroll or bike ride from the main road. With great wildlife and plenty to explore this is one of the most popular public lands in Bowdoinham. Great views of the water and picnic areas can be found at this kid and dog friendly site. In the winter snowmobilers, snowshoers and cross-country skiers alike can enjoy this open snow-covered field. At all times of year it is beautiful at dusk, the golden hour looks extra magical through the trees! Be sure to visit all of our town’s public lands for the true Bowdoinham experience!
