Full Description

Is Maine's famed natural character vanishing? The answer isof it, thanks to the hard work and generosity of people such as Percival Baxter and Peggy Rockefeller, and of dozens of concerned, ordinary citizens and groups such as the Maine Coast Heritage Trust and The Nature Conservancy, which have helped to establish preserves and parks that will maintain at least some of the natural beauty of Maine forever.
