Nearly 20 years ago, after Restore: The North Woods unveiled its plan for a 3.2 million-acre Maine Woods National Park, Roxanne Quimby became an immediate fan.

“I’ve always loved the national parks,” she said during an extensive interview recently. “I visit them every chance I can.”

As the founder of Burt’s Bees, a nationally known company she founded in Maine and later moved to North Carolina before selling in 2003, Quimby also saw the plan in business terms.
