I heard it's a law that you need an invasives plant sticker to boat on Maine lakes now. How do I go about getting one?
The Maine Legislature passed a bill that is designed to provide funding to help prevent the spread of Milfoil and other aquatic invasive species into Maine waters. The bill requires boaters to have a Lake and River Protection sticker displayed on their boat if they are operating in fresh water. The stickers are $10 for residents and $20 for non-residents. Stickers are available from any town hall in the state of Maine, as well as all retail outlets where fishing licenses are sold. In many instances these are corner stores that sell out-of-state fishing licenses, often conveniently located in the vicinity of popular inland boating areas. If you would like more information, please contact the Maine Department of Environmental Protection at 1-800-452-1942 or visit them at www.mainedep.com.
