AUGUSTA (AP) — A Maine board is seeking proposals from state agencies, non-profit organizations, and municipalities for land conservation projects.

The Land for Maine’s Future Board is looking for projects to be funded using about $10.4 million in state bonds approved by voters.

The board says it’s seeking proposals on farmland protection, protection of working waterfront access, and public access for things like boating and fishing.

It says it will give priority to proposals focused on protecting habitats that provide shelter and food for white-tailed deer during the winter.

Groups have until March 28 to submit proposals.
