Quimby to open 40K acres to hunting

Lucas St. Clair, son of Burt’s Bees founder Roxanne Quimby, has decided to open 40,000 acres of family-owned land to hunting, in an effort to advance support of a broader vision for Maine’s North Woods.

The Maine Public Broadcasting Network reported Quimby and her son will also expand access for recreational activities on 60,000 acres of their land, owned under Eliotsville Plantation Inc.

St. Clair said the decision is part of a move toward creating a 75,000-acre national park with an adjacent 75,000-square-foot recreation area.

Don Kleiner, executive director of the Maine Professional Guides Association, and a longtime critic of the national park plan, told MPBN that the latest announcement is a step in the right direction and that the board of his organization plans to meet privately with St. Clair later this month.
