"News & Issues" piece on an Appalachian Mountain Club (AMC) proposal to expand its hut system to the Tumbledown Mountain range. Conrad Heeschen, a member of the Tumbledown Conservation Alliance, has accused AMC of a backroom maneuver to get the state Bureau of Parks and Lands to fast-track the proposal before considering the impact on the already heavily used mountain area. The state is presently negotiating with area landowners for 32,000 acres at a projected cost of $7 million and the acquisition is a top priority of the Land for Maine's Future Board and AMC officials now say they might buy their own parcel in the area for hut development.
