Restore: The North Woods, a Massachusetts-based conservation group headed by Mic
Restore: The North Woods, a Massachusetts-based conservation group headed by Michael J. Kellett, yesterday unveiled plans for the creation of a giant 3.2 million-acre national park in the heart of Maine's industrial forest. The plan calls for the federal government to buy up the land over time from willing sellers at an estimated cost of $750 million to $1 billion in order to create the park, which would be the largest in the continental United States. Restore plans to launch a petition drive to asking Congress to order a feasibily study of the proposal, which has received a cool reception from the Maine Audubon Society and forest landowners, who are concerned about both environmental issues and impact such a scheme would have the state's economy.
