DNR Accepting Shoreline Licensing For Riparian Property Owners Until June 1
ANNAPOLIS, MD — Riparian (waterfront) property owners may apply for shoreline licensing through the Maryland Department of Natural Resources (DNR) Wildlife and Heritage Service until June 1, 2008. Anyone owning riparian property or persons who possess permission of the riparian property owner, may license their shoreline for the purpose of establishing stationary blinds or blind sites for hunting waterfowl, or to prevent others from licensing the shoreline at a later date.
Riparian property owners may license their shoreline for a period of one year for a $20 fee or three years for a $60 fee. Landowners who miss the June 1 deadline may participate in the “open” licensing process that begins Aug. 5, 2008.
For an application and information visit http://www.dnr.maryland.gov/wildlife/riparian.html or by call 410-260-8540 or toll free at 1-877-620-8DNR (8367).
