Elliotsville Plantation, Inc. donated to the American people 87,500 acres of land east of Baxter State Park to create the Katahdin Woods and Waters National Monument. The national monument is available for hiking, camping, fishing, wildlife watching, cross country skiing, and other activities. The national monument will be one way to help revitalize the economy of nearby towns, while permanently conserving a portion of Maine’s iconic forests, safeguarding miles of rivers and streams, and connecting habitat on a large scale to benefit many native plants and animals. Here are a few photos of this beautiful area. If you have photos from your trip to visit the Katahdin Woods and Waters National Monument, please share them with us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
