ME Nature Conservancy Flips More Private Land to Gov't

[i]Editor's Note: So the TNC starts out using taxpayer money to buy private property, then flips the land back into government ownership. Where do the taxpayers fit into these elite plans?[/i]

Conservationists see gold in Camden Hills

This winter the Maine Chapter of the Nature Conservancy will transfer ownership of 235 acres of land in three parcels abutting the 5,500-acre park to the state Bureau of Parks and Lands.

All were acquired earlier this year by the conservancy, which used $1,028,000 in funds from the Land for Maine's Future Program to help finance the purchases.
