AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) - A state board that protects land for natural and recreational value is seeking proposals for land conservation projects.

The funding comes from $4.5 million in bonds approved by Maine voters.

The board is seeking conservation and recreational projects, as well as initiatives looking at farmland and water access.

The deadline set by the Land for Maine’s Future program is September 1.

The conservation bonds were the subject of a flap when the governor refused to sign $11.5 million in voter-approved bonds.

The governor then said he would sell the bonds, and the Legislature in 2016 approved a bill reauthorizing $6.5 million of expired bonds.
