Maine officials say the northern Maine state park that includes Mount Katahdin has a new director.
The Baxter State Park Authority announced on Thursday that Eben Sypitkowski has been named the new head of Baxter State Park, the home to the state's highest peak. Sypitkowski is currently the park's resource manager.
The state says Sypitkowski will direct about 60 year-round and seasonal employees who maintain the park, which is a major tourist attraction in northern Maine.
The Baxter State Park Authority is made up of Director of the Bureau of Forestry Doug Denico, Commissioner of Inland Fisheries & Wildlife Chandler Woodcock and Attorney General Janet Mills.
