The following guidelines apply to all LELT-owned lands. LELT properties are owned & managed by the land trust.

LELT is dedicated to protecting access to land in the Sebago Lake Region of Maine for a variety of recreational activities, including hunting. When hiking on LELT lands & trails during hunting season, wear visible orange clothing and avoid peak hunting hours. Hunters should be aware of where popular hiking trails exist.
Hunting is not allowed on Sundays per Maine law, but it is recommended that hikers still wear brightly colored clothing.
Hunting is allowed on all LELT-owned lands. Please be aware of property boundaries, trails, and follow all Maine State Hunting Laws & regulations.
LELT properties where hunting is allowed:
* Indicate properties without robust trail networks.
** Note that this policy does not apply to lands on which LELT holds a conservation easement, since these lands are owned by other private parties who continue to exercise control over public uses, including hunting, consistent with the terms of the easement. Some properties protected with LELT easements do allow hunting, such as Perley Mills Community Forest in Denmark & Sebago.
If you have questions about hunting on LELT lands, please contact Stewardship Manager Jon Evans at email@example.com or call 207-647-4352.

Many of our properties can accommodate geocaching, however a number of our conservation lands protect rare plant communities or sensitive wildlife, and caching can negatively impact these habitats. Please contact LELT if you are interested in placing a cache on one of our conservation lands. 207-647-4352 or email email@example.com.
