Dam Pond Maritime Reserve, a large area (approx. 36 acres) in East Marion, has been established for several years now.  This site is perhaps best for birders during early spring migration, mid-fall migration and during the winter as a place to see ducks and other over-wintering land birds.  Dam Pond is unique for its maritime red cedar forest.  Also, contained in the reserve, are oaks, pines, hardwoods, fields, salt scrub and grass, and a shallow tidal pond that exits into Orient Harbor.  In recent years, a grassland restoration project has been initiated and efforts have been made to remove invasive plant species.
