Abstract

"North by East" piece in which Jay Epsy, president of the Brunswick-based Maine Coast Heritage Trust, notes that protecting Maine's natural resources is becoming increasingly more complicated. Epsy points out, for example, that this summer it took a coalition three Maine land trusts and two national conservation groups working with the U.S. Department of Fish and Wildlife to acquire nine islands and a salt marsh between Boothbay Harbor and Jonesport. When the transaction was completed in June, 348 acres became part of the Petit Manan Wildlife Refuge. Likewise, it took three years of negotiations and a small army of individuals and government, private, and corporate interests, including a key $50,000 donation from L. L. Beans, to acquire for the state about two miles of pristine Grand Lake Stream, one of the country's premier fly-fishing waters.
