Baxter would approve?
Baxter would approveThe Friends of Baxter State Park supports the decision of the Baxter State Park Authority to remove the "Outlet" and "Lookout" cabins at Daicey Pond.We believe that removal of these buildings is consistent with Gov. Percival Baxter's vision and good wilderness management. The pond shoreline is an environmentally and experientially sensitive area. When the cabins are removed, the visual landscape of the pond and the relatively remote experience it offers will improve, and water quality will be better protected. All of these are important wilderness values.We support efforts to maintain park facilities in keeping with the wilderness character of the park, while allowing visitors to enjoy the park in the right unspoiled way.Charles JacobiPresidentFriends ofBaxter State ParkBar Harbor
