TPL Completes Two Millinocket Conservation Deals with Quimby, State

MILLINOCKET, MAINE: The Trust for Public Land announced today they have completed two deals to conserve more than 7,000 acres in the Millinocket region of Maine, primarily for recreation and sustainable timber harvesting.

The conservation of the land concludes more than three years of work by the Maine office of The Trust for Public Land (TPL), a national conservation organization, to facilitate the deals with the landowner, Elliotsville Plantation, Inc., which services the acquisition and stewardship roles for Burt's Bees founder Roxanne Quimby.

"TPL is proud to have worked with the Town of Millinocket, snowmobile and ATV enthusiasts, the Bureau of Parks & Lands, and Ms. Quimby to protect these lands, and keep them working and available to the public," said Wolfe Tone, Maine's TPL state director. "The parties involved all shared a common vision that enabled us to stay focused on completing these terrific acquisitions."

The deals conserve two properties.
