This Maine Park Has Endless Boardwalks And You’ll Want To Explore Them All

A great example of this is the Orono Bog Boardwalk system in Orono. Run by the University of Maine, this beautiful park allows visitors to explore a natural wetland while learning about the important ecological system that keeps the state running smoothly and beautifully.
