Maine’s Bureau of Parks and Lands has released a new map that focuses on the state’s public reserved lands.The map, “Your Maine Lands: recreational map and guide to public reserved lands,” is a comprehensive guide to the hundreds of thousands of acres of public reserved lands across the state.Public reserved lands are remote, and unstaffed, state-owned lands that are managed for a number of purposes, including recreation, wildlife, and timber harvesting. The Bureau of Public Lands owns more than 500 thousand acres of the lands, mostly in Western, Northern, and Eastern Maine.Funded through a grant from the Maine Outdoor Heritage Fund, the map can be obtained through the bureau’s website www.maine.gov/doc/
