The Ken Burns series on The National Parks: America's Best Idea has reignited interest in the Maine Woods National Park & National Preserve proposal. This richly illustrated presentation describes the ongoing ownership and land use revolution in northern Maine and other pressures on Thoreau's Maine Woods. This talk by Jym St. Pierre, Maine Director of RESTORE: The North Woods, explores ideas to restore Maine's globally significant wildlands- including the vision of creating a spectacular 3.2 million-acre national park & preserve.
