Elliotsville Plantation, Inc., is a 2017 SHIFT Award Official Selection. Its president, Lucas St. Clair, led a twelve-year effort to establish the Katahdin Woods and Waters National Monument in Maine. St. Clair brought a different style to the debate over a national park, meeting with locals over kitchen tables and on forest trails. He opened up 40,000 acres of Elliotsville Plantation to hunting and snowmobiling in 2013, endearing himself to local residents. St. Clair’s effort sought to redefine the relationship between access, rural economics and outdoor recreation. His work came to fruition in 2016 with the successful establishment of the Monument.
