National Parks Magazine Highlights Maine Woods

Washington, D.C. - Statement by Ron Tipton, Senior Vice President, National Parks Conservation Association:

NPCA believes that the Maine Woods is a nationally significant landscape, and very worthy of National Park designation. While we encourage Congress to authorize a study of the Maine Woods for its potential addition to the National Park System, we recognize that serious public dialogue and discussion of the proposal in Maine is essential. It is highly unlikely that any park could be created without strong public support in the state.

It is our hope that the Fall issue of NPCA’s membership magazine National Parks, which features a cover story on the Maine Woods, can help to encourage this kind of public discussion in Maine.

National Parks magazine is available at select booksellers now. Hard copies of the magazine can be obtained by calling Kelli Holsendolph at 202-223-6722, ext. 220.
