Maine parks ‘passport’ program launched

The Associated Press

AUGUSTA, Maine — Maine’s Bureau of Parks and Lands has launched a new program that aims to get more people out to state parks and historic sites.

The Maine State Parks Passport Program involves giving out a “passport” that participants can have stamped at each park they visit. The booklet contains a descriptive page for each of the state’s 48 parks and historic sites.

As passport holders accumulate stamps, they can win prizes ranging from park patches and water bottles to a free seasonal park pass.

Bureau of Public Lands Director Will Harris said the program is designed to encourage people to get out in the fresh air and to increase visitation at the state parks.
