AUGUSTA, Maine — The Maine Conservation Department said state park passes are available on a reconfigured online site this season.

The department is offering a secure, convenient method of purchasing season passes to all 48 state parks and historic sites on the new online system. It has been completely reconfigured by InforMe, the state’s online-information developer.

In test mode for the past two weeks, the system is now used successfully by park-pass customers.

Last year, more than 2.6 million people visited Maine’s state parks and historic sites.
