|Landowner/Land User Awards |
The Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife (IF&W) in cooperation with the Department's Landowner and Sportsmen Relations Advisory Board (LSRAB) hosts a Landowner / Land User Awards Banquet each year. At the event, the most outstanding landowner and land user group are recognized. If you know of a deserving group, they invite your nomination for this year's awards.
Over 90% of Maine's land is privately owned. Outdoor enthusiasts rely on the generosity of private landowners to allow public access to their land. The responsible and appropriate use of private land by various user groups has helped build relationships between landowners and land user groups, which allows many outdoor recreational opportunities to flourish. The IF&W Landowner Relations Program seeks to maintain Maine's unique heritage and ensure that the outdoor recreational opportunities available today, will continue to be available to future generations.
Nominations Due: June 2.
For more information or to obtain a nomination form, contact Heather L. Rodrigue,
