Liaison with the Maine
Warden Service Association
The Maine Warden Service Association is made up of dues-paying, active, and retired Maine Game Wardens. Its primary purpose is to give moral and material aid to game wardens and their families in good and bad times. The MWSA accepts donations from the general public to assist game wardens and their families.
Maine Game Warden Magazine
The bi-annual Maine Game Warden Magazine is the official magazine of the Maine Game Warden Foundation. It is a compilation of interesting, sometimes humorous, short stories, photographs of outdoor adventures, and historical tales. There are featured articles about interesting cases, search and rescue, and warden stories while on patrol in Maine's forests. There is even a section of photographs of active and retired game wardens and their families enjoying outdoor sports together, advertisements from businesses who support the Maine Game Warden Foundation's mission.
Individuals and corporations who would like to partner with the Maine Game Warden Foundation are encouraged to do so at whatever level they wish. Certainly, sponsors receive a copy of the Maine Game Warden Magazine, and all donations are tax-deductible. Our mission statement sums up our reason for being.
