Dear Maine Lawmakers,
Land for Maine’s Future (LMF) is Maine’s most successful and popular land conservation program, but it has not received any new funding since 2012. At the same time, our State Parks, which saw record levels of visitors in 2020, are in desperate need of improvements, with an estimated $50 million maintenance backlog.
We need to reinvest in these popular programs to support local farming, fishing, forestry, and tourism businesses that rely on Maine’s natural resources, and expandaccess to public lands and waters for all Mainers and visitors to our state.
Passing a bond package to reinvest in these programs has never been more important because of increased demand for Maine real estate and increased popularity of local parks and trails due to the pandemic. Please vote to support these bonds and conserve Maine’s natural and working lands, to provide access to them for all who value Maine’s environment.
