AUGUSTA — The Baxter State Park Authority is expected to formally approve a 140-acre gift by a forest management company to the northern Maine wilderness preserve.

The park authority takes up the donation by Huber Resources today. A news conference is planned afterward in the State House to show images and video footage of the land.

Huber Resources’ donation comes several years after Baxter park officials accepted the deed to about 4,000 acres surrounding Katahdin Lake. But that land didn’t include two small parcels that remained privately owned, the larger of which is owned by Huber Resources.

Sherry Huber, representing the fourth generation of the Huber family, and state Conservation Commissioner William Beardsley are among those scheduled to attend today’s news conference.
