This year marks the 30th anniversary of the Land for Maine’s Future (LMF) program, which has protected more than 490,000 acres of land, working waterfronts, and working farms. We encourage you to explore the more than 100 LMF sites throughout Maine, in all 16 counties. Use our Explore Maine Map to help you find a location near you.
To celebrate LMF’s anniversary, we invited our members and supporters to send us their photos taken on LMF lands. We then asked you to vote for the winner on our Facebook page. Thanks to all of you who entered and voted. Here is a slideshow of all of the photos that were selected as finalists. We hope you enjoy and that this My Maine This Week inspires you to go out and visit some of Maine’s beautiful and vast public lands.
