The Wells Reserve at Laudholm spans 2,250 protected acres of field, salt marsh and beach. There is much to do, see and learn during your visit to this national treasure, whether you are winding through a wooded trail, walking the open coastline or taking part in a guided kayak tour. The diverse geography of the land is a feast for the senses: fields brimming with honeysuckle, oak-pine forests, fern-laden swamps and tidepool habitats of invertebrates shimmering at the mouths of rivers. A guided walking tour is an excellent way to learn about the diverse flora and fauna covering the lands, but an independent journey through the reserve makes for an inspirational visit as well.
