Burt’s Bees founder wants to donate national park

Roxanne Quimby, founder of Conservation Alliance Member, Burt's Bees, is a conservation-minded individual with a passion for wildland protection.

Although Quimby is no longer involved with Burt's Bees, she remains loyal to her passions for art, wildlife, conservation and the environment. She has purchased tens of thousands of acres of Maine's fabled North Woods and now wants to give more that 70,000 wild acres next to Maine's cherished Baxter State Park to the federal government, hoping to create a Maine Woods National Park. She envisions this national park as a tribute to Henry David Thoreau, as well as her own personal legacy. 

If the creation of this new national park is successful, it will be nearly twice the size of Maine's Acadia National Park.
