Late last week Governor Janet T. Mills (D), announced funding for nine new Land for Maine’s Future (LMF) conservation projects across Maine, advancing the State of Maine’s commitment to preserve precious natural resources, protect wildlife habitats and ensure public access to lakes, rivers, scenic views and mountain vistas.

“These nine projects will preserve thousands of acres of land for the benefit and enjoyment of future generations,” said Governor Mills  “I am proud that, through actions taken by the Legislature and my Administration, we are continuing to protect more and more of our cherished natural resounces.”

The one such property that is located in Cumberland County is in Brunswick.  It’s Marquoit Bay-Sherwood.  It’s a 32 acre property to be acquired by the Brunswick Topsham Land Trust.  For more information, about the LMF program, please visit
