Katahdin in the News on MPBN

[December 28, 2019]

Listen to MPBN as they present a panel of experts discussing Katahdin’s historic role and cultural and economic importance, featuring Barry Dana, teacher, artist, former chief of Penobscot Nation, David Little, landscape artist, author, "Art of Katahdin: The Mountain, The Range, The Region," Jym St. Pierre, board secretary, Friends of Baxter State Park; Maine director, RESTORE: The North Woods; editor, Maine Environmental News and Howard Whitcomb, historian, former board member for Friends of Baxter State Park.

The highest peak in Maine, Katahdin looms large in Maine's history--and continues to hold great importance in our state, culturally and economically. Not only is it a significant landmark and symbol for Native communities, artists and tourists, it's the northern terminus of the Appalachian Trail and offers abundant opportunities for outdoor recreation.
