The mission of RESTORE is to restore, preserve, and defend the natural integrity of the North Woods of the United States and Canada through education, advocacy, and citizen activism. Our major programs include:
* Maine Woods National Park campaign, to create a park and preserve larger than Yellowstone and Yosemite combined;
* Maine Woods Defense project, challenging destructive development, such as Plum Creek’s Moosehead Lake development scheme and the proposed East-West Highway/Corridor, a 220-mile-long industrial zone that would cut the state in half;
*Public Lands Protection, including the Allagash Wilderness Waterway, White Mountain and Green Mountain National Forests, and Massachusetts state parks and forests;
* New National Parks project, to build a grassroots movement to create new parks across America.
