America’s Last Vast Forest: Maine’s Appalachian Mountain Corridor
Several friends of Biophilia Foundation have been working diligently to save this immense and immensely important corridor. Biophilia Foundation is pleased to share this content and video with its readers.
Maine’s Appalachian Mountain Corridor, the largest intact forest in the eastern U.S., is also wedged between the largest metro regions in the U.S. and Canada. Its people and communities are closely tied to this landscape where conservation, recreation, forestry, and connection to place are all linked together. Join us in conserving this American treasure.
Watch the video and hear the stories of residents, business owners, nature advocates, and experts in the field as they tell of their desire to protect and save their beloved mountains, forests, and waterways.
