We Did It! The Katahdin Woods and Waters National Monument

lynxOn August 24, 2016, President Obama announced his designation of a national monument in Maine’s north woods: The Katahdin Woods and Waters National Monument!

This is wonderful news for Maine, and in particular for our state’s wildlife, as it provides permanent protection to many species that rely on the unique north woods habitat, the largest contiguous temperate forest in the eastern United States.

Thanks to the Quimby family for making this incredible gift to the American people, and to President Obama for making this historic designation that will protect this ecological and cultural treasure!
