Grafton Notch a Number One Priority

Grafton Notch State Park is the top-ranked project in this year's federal budget when it comes to land conservation. A proposed $2 million expenditure would protect 3,688 acres of additional forest and recreation land adjacent to the Western Maine park.
"For the first time in the history of that program, Maine´s number one project is ranked number one in the country," said Sam Hodder, senior project manager for The Trust for Public Land. [Link]
Also proposed—eleventh of the 31 Forest Legacy Program projects listed—is $2.2 million for the acquisition of more than 42,000 acres in the Penobscot River watershed.
