This Land is Your Land, This Land is My Land – Exploring Maine’s Privately Owned Forests by Bike

October 20, 2021 All day

Did you know that 94% of Maine’s forest land is privately owned, and more than half of that land is open to the public? This access is an incredible gift, and in order to preserve it, everyone who ventures outdoors needs to understand the contribution that landowners make. 

Join the BCM and the Maine Dept. of Inland Fisheries & Wildlife to discuss adventure bicycling across Maine’s beautiful private lands. IF&W Cpl. Dave Chabot joins us to talk about:

—Courteous, respectful, and responsible land use

—Earning and maintaining landowners’ trust

—Remote overnight camping

—Use of ATV and snowmobile trail systems

—Sharing your adventures through social media vs keeping them quiet

—And more!
