SAM Mission – We are a non-profit corporation founded in 1975 to promote conservation of Maine’s wildlife resources and to be an advocate for hunters, anglers, trappers and gun owners throughout the state.
SAM opened a new 100-acre Outdoor Education Center in 2020. It includes 3.2 miles of hiking/nature trails, two trout fishing ponds for children and the disabled, a limited-use outdoor range and a safe space where youth groups can camp.
SAM’s Veterans and First Responders Program (V/FR) was developed to thank those men and women who have defended our freedoms and protected our health and safety. The goal of the program is to provide family-oriented opportunities that allow veterans and their families to experience the outdoor heritage for which Maine is famous.
