And Now There Are 413 / by Dave Hileman

A new National Park Service site came on line the end of August. It is Katahdin Woods and Waters National Monument located in central Maine. It consists of four separate tracts two abut the Baxter Park, one is on the south east side and the fourth, the largest unit is more northeast of Baxter. The land was donated to the park service. The photo is of a moose swimming across a large lake very late on a rainy day in September. It was taken just outside the boundary of Baxter State Park in 2013. It "might" even be within the new park but it is certainly very close and will have to do until? There are a lot of articles on the park and several include vocal opposition to it from local residents. Here is just one link:
