Maine Voices: Don’t wait until after it’s gone to protect our public land

Featured Conservation Story
The creation of Acadia National Park is often noted as a significant landmark in what we might today refer to as Maine’s Conservation Movement. It’s impossible to visit there and not be impacted by the beauty of the place, but also by the foresight it took to conceive of a National Park. Think about it: the world was a very different place a hundred years ago. Many people could not have imagined that this country wasn’t big enough to accommodate unlimited growth and development. Thanks goodness some could.
