Founder of Burt's Bees Cosmetics Donates Land to National Park Service

A Yahoo/AP article describes how Roxanne Quimby, founder of Burt's Bees cosmetics (now owned by Clorox), is offering 70,000 acres to be made into a new national park in Maine, and an additional 30,000 acres to be managed as a state park. She had the foresight to buy the land cheap, before developers could get their hands on it.
