The Pulpit Harbor Preserve is located at the head of Pulpit Harbor, on the other side of First Bridge from NHCP’s Mill Stream property. The Preserve’s 3.5 acres are a gently rolling landscape, dominated by field, with wide-open views of one of the prettiest harbors on the coast of Maine.

The North Shore Preserve is among the most visited of NHCP’s properties. The two units of the Preserve, on either side of North Shore Road, offer a wide diversity of landscape- from the coastline, through fields and forests, to freshwater wetlands that protect and feed the Charlie Brown’s Pond Watershed.
