PORTLAND, Maine (AP) - The Land for Maine’s Future Board will spend more than $9 million on 30 land conservation projects in 37 communities and 13 counties across the state.

The board voted this week to provide $9.15 million to fund the projects. The Portland Press Herald (https://bit.ly/1r8yApx ) reports the projects vary from 10,214 acres northeast of Moosehead Lake to 215 acres in Cumberland and North Yarmouth.

The funds are voter-approved bond money authorized in 2010 and 2012. The board’s chairman says it could be several weeks before the exact amount of money each project will get can be determined.

One of the projects is 13,875 acres that includes streams, campsites and four mountain peaks in the Gulf Hagas region in Piscataquis County. The project includes part of the Appalachian Trail.
