Ryan Parker, outreach coordinator for the Natural Resources Council of Maine, will speak at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 11, at the First Universalist Church of Pittsfield, 112 Easy St. He will talk about Elliotsville Plantation Inc.’s proposal to create a new National Park and National Recreation Area east of Baxter State Park.

EPI has proposed to donate up to 150,000 acres to the national park service to create Maine’s second National Park. Parker will share photographs and film to provide a glimpse of the land and its special features, and will describe the journey toward making the dream of a National Park and National Recreation Area a reality.

Light refreshments will be served. For more information, contact [email protected] or 430-0144.
