The Maine Natural Areas Program (MNAP) firmly believes that voluntary conservation is the most effective way to protect Maine's natural heritage. Informing landowners of significant botanical features documented on their land or requesting permission to conduct a field survey of a particular parcel are ongoing efforts at MNAP and provide the opportunity for MNAP to offer management suggestions and technical assistance to landowners interested in conservation.
MNAP has developed a landowner contact system to manage and maintain information about the landowners we work with. Landowners may be contacted for many reasons. Most often, landowners are sent letters containing information about their property or requesting permission for MNAP to conduct a field survey. If permission is granted and a field survey is conducted, follow-up information and field survey results are provided to the landowner.
