What is the future of the northern maine woods?
Thursday, April 29, 2004
DEXTER - The George Abbott Lecture Series 2004 is an inquiry study discussion on the 2nd Wed. of the Month at 6 pm. A forum is communication of ideas a critical examination and investigation to seek information to acquire knowledge to reason rationally.

On Wed. May 12, 2004 6PM, the Abbott Memorial Library is proud to present a discussion program that focuses on the future of the Northern Maine Woods. Changes in the forest products industry have created concerns regarding the future of these vast tracts of woodlands in the minds of many.

There are those who would like to see the north woods remain under the control of the paper companies, others would like to see the land preserved as a National Park, still others who would like to see the woods utilized for forest products as well as being kept open for public recreation. Most Mainers acknowledge that change is coming to the North Woods and coming quickly. There are a number of organizations who are taking a role in determining how the north woods will look in the year 2050. We have invited representatives from various key organizations to present their views on this complex issue.

Please join us and our guests as we share a thoughtful and insightful discussion about an issue important to all Maine residents.
