Reminder: Riparian Property Licensing Applications Due by June 1

The Maryland Department of Natural Resources reminds riparian (waterfront) property owners who want to apply for offshore blind and shoreline licensing that applications are due by mail June 1.  Riparian property owners, or those with permission from the property owner, may license the shoreline to establish stationary blinds or blind sites for hunting waterfowl, or to prevent others from licensing it at a later date.

Property owners may license their shoreline for a period of one year for $20 or three years for $60. Landowners who miss the June 1 deadline may participate in the “open” licensing process that begins August 5.

For an application and more information, visit or call 410-260-8540, or toll free, 1-877-620-8367.
