Thank you to our generous sponsors:
Bissell Brothers Brewing
Bissell Brothers Brewing is now donating a percentage of sales of its Preserve and Protect beer to support Baxter State Park. The Portland-based brewery has pledged to contribute at least $5,000 annually to Friends of Baxter State Park in support of our work. Preserve and Protect is an India pale ale featuring Simcoe, Citra, and Denali hops that was brewed as a tribute to Jensen Bissell, who served as director of Baxter State Park from 2006 – 2018.
"Baxter State Park has existed on a foundation of generosity and love of Maine's natural resources from the beginning, starting with Percival Proctor Baxter's gift, and on down through the stewards tasked with keeping that gift going in perpetuity, our father having recently completed his life's work in this role. It is because of these things that we must do our part to ensure Baxter State Park's continued success as a natural sanctuary and gem of the state of Maine." - Peter Bissell
