MARYLAND MANUAL. 55

State Game Protection Fund and used for the support of the Division
and for game purposes and, naturally, the general treasury does not
appropriate a single dollar to the support of the Division.

The State owns outright 7049 acres and has under lease 35,603 acres
of land used for game refuges which are located in practically every
county of the State with the State Game Farm comprising nearly 300
acres located at Gwynnbrook in Baltimore County' as well as the State
Game Farm comprising 175 acres located at Salisbury, Wicomico County
on which bob-white quail are propagated through electric incubators,
Since 1919 thousands upon thousands of pieces of game have been liber-
ated in the covers for propagation purposes.

The first public shooting ground in Maryland was opened on Novem-
ber 10th, 1928 on a 600 acre tract of land bordering the line between
Washington and Allegany Counties, in 1926 all fish pots and dams were
removed from the Potomac River and its tributaries, thereby giving
tiro fish free access up and down said waters.

The Division, for a number of years, has done a great deal of educa-
tional work in order to teach conservation of our natural resources. In
1927 through the co-operation of the National Association of Audubon
Societies, a lecturer was engaged to visit all the public schools in Mary-
land and lecture to the school children on "Conservation." The demand
for the services of this lecturer increased so rapidly it was necessary to
engage the services of an additional lecturer who took up his work,
October 1st, 1929. This work has proven very successful and wonderful
results have been obtained.

The Division publishes quarterly the "Maryland Conservationist,"
which goes into every State of the Union and into all the Provinces of
Canada as well as some of the European Countries, important bulletins
are also issued from time to time.
