Gilsland-Farm-Audubon-Center-Option-1-300x200The legislative session is wrapping up quickly and we need legislators to vote in support of bond funding for the Land for Maine’s Future program before they adjourn. Please contact your legislators and urge them to support LD 1248.

LD 1248 proposes $20 million of new bond funding for the state’s land conservation program.

For more than two decades, LMF has benefited the state’s long-term economic health by conserving such key assets as working farms, forests and waterfronts as well as key tourism and recreation sites all across Maine. But there is next to no more money available for future projects. Without new funding, opportunities will be lost! For more information, visit our web page.

The Land for Maine’s Future program has an outstanding record of success at protecting Maine’s natural legacy.

Land for Maine’s Future program has a history of broad, bi-partisan support.

  • More than 59% of Maine voters supported the 2010 ballot initiative.
  • Democratic and Republican legislators have consistently shown strong support for LMF.

Please contact your legislators today and urge them to support LD 1248.

Thank you for your support,
