Abstract

Article on Petit Manan National Wildlife Refuge, located near the town of Steuben. It is one of the largest nature preserves in the state and comprises more than 2,000 acres on two points on the mainland, as well as close to 1,500 acres on seventeen islands from the Damariscotta River to Jonesport. According to refuge manager Stan Skutek, only about 15,000 people visited the refuge last year. Petit Manan is simply so far off the beaten path that most Mainers haven't even heard of it. In winter, the federal sanctuary is open to hikers, snowshoers, and cross-country skiers.
