Private for Public
Open land is a gift, not a given
Unlike most states, Maine has a long tradition of public access to private land; but what that really means – and what private landowners expect – isn’t widely understood. Host Kris MacCabe will take listeners inside the long-standing yet delicate relationship between Maine’s owners and users – hearing from landowners about what motivates them to keep their property open for recreation and conservation, and in other cases getting the stories behind freshly-posted No Trespassing signs.
