Ed Flannagan Pollinator Garden
While serving 24 years as CEO at Wyman’s of Maine, Ed was a leader in the effort to save the honeybees. He delivered testimony to a Congressional hearing on USDA funding for bee health, where he warned, “No bees, no berries.” Under Ed’s leadership, Wyman’s has grown to be a national leader in bee conservation. Ed’s contributions are not limited to the insect world. Ed and wife Jane have also strengthened the Downeast community through their advocacy and philanthropy, crafting a legacy of caring and compassion.
Bill Arnold Memorial Bench
This granite bench constructed by Jesse Salisbury, was placed in 2019 to honor Bill Arnold, one of Incredible Edible Milbridge’s very first volunteers.
“I didn’t want to place a formal bench in a landscape that is celebrating nature. What I wanted to do was put a natural boulder back in the landscape that hides a perfect relaxing spot in front of a fantastic view.” ~ Jesse Salisbury
Milbridge Commons Walking Trail
The trail at Milbridge Commons follows the curve of the land offering sweeping views of the Narraguagus Bay. This loop is 975′ long. Walking can complete a mile in just under 5 1/2 laps. This 6′ wide trail has a deep gravel base topped with stone dust that makes it easier on the joints than pavement. It is stroller and wheelchair friendly allowing everyone access to this fabulous space.
The Views at McClellan Park Lighthouse
Artist, Janie Snider, painted “The Views at McClellan Park” lighthouse as a tribute to McClellan Park in Milbridge. “The painting is my understanding of the views from daylight to dusk in a 360• view!” The lighthouse was purchased at auction and donated to Women for Healthy Rural Living who chose to give this beautiful artwork a permanent home at Milbridge Commons.
