One of the projects I’ve always been very proud of is the Maine Outdoor Heritage Fund, which was my idea when I worked for the Sportsman’s Alliance of Maine. I recruited Maine Audubon as our partner and the legislature enacted it and Governor Angus King signed it into law. I was privileged to serve on the MOHF board for its first 10 years.
MOHF gets its money from an instant lottery game, and has now given more than $20 million to important projects including a lot of outdoor recreation and wildlife conservation projects.
