Welcome to Merryspring, a non-profit, 66-acre nature park and education center in Camden and Rockport, Maine, with trails and gardens open to the public every day during daylight hours, free of charge. This member-supported organization offers talks, classes and workshops throughout the year.

Merryspring’s mission is “to practice, teach and advocate sound principles of ecology, conservation and horticulture in order to protect our natural environment, and to provide natural landscapes and cultivated areas for public enjoyment.”
