DescriptionThe statute creating the Allagash Wilderness Waterway in 1966 specified several outdoor activities traditionally participated in along the watercourse. Additionally, there are other outdoor activities traditional to the watercourse. The identification and provision of opportunities for these activities, consistent with maintaining wilderness character, is central to long-term protection and management of the Waterway. An Advisory Committee has been created by the Bureau of Parks and Lands to assist the Bureau in identification of suitable opportunities for traditional outdoor activities and preparation of a plan to guide management of the Allagash into the 21st Century.
