Requests for research at Baxter State Park go directly to Park Director Erwin Ca
Requests for research at Baxter State Park go directly to Park Director Erwin Caverly, who decides 95 percent of them because they are so clear-cut. Of 20 proposals over the years, eight have been rejected, most because they failed to provide enough lead time for review. The Baxter State Park Authority recently decided that the current rule-of-thumb policy on research in Baxter has worked well, despite some controversy over a proposed pine marten study. There is also some controversy over Caverly's decision to allow representatives of the Northern Forest Alliance to gather names of trail hikers on petitions calling for broad protection measures for forestland in northern New England and New York.
