About this site

Learn more about Muddy Pond Wilderness Preserve here. Located in Kingston, MA, about 30 minutes south of Boston, Muddy Pond is a rare, undeveloped Coastal Plain Pond surrounded by Atlantic Pine Barrens protected as forever-wild by Northeast Wilderness Trust. In this rewilding photopoint, an extension of Muddy Pond was once converted to a cranberry bog after European settlement. Today, it is returning to a natural state, and the water fluctuates as the Coastal Plain Pond rises and falls in accordance with rainfall and drought. Your photos help tell the story of seasonal changes in this dynamic ecosystem as well as documenting nature returning to wilderness in real time.
