Uniting & Engaging the Next Generation of People Who Love Maine

NRCM Rising is a group created by the Natural Resources Council of Maine to engage and connect people in their 20s, 30s, and into their 40s who love Maine. NRCM Rising holds events around the state where you can meet others who care about issues facing Maine’s air, land, water, and wildlife.

  • Fun outdoor trips like hikes in the North Woods and paddles along the coast
  • Engaging presentations on hot issues facing Maine’s environment
  • Eat, drink, and be merry social networking events
  • Trainings to hone your communications and advocacy skills

  • The chance to make fun, social connections with other young people who share your love of Maine

And we want to hear from you!

We want to know about the issues you care about—clean air and water? Vibrant forests? Healthy wildlife habitat? For more than 55 years, NRCM has been leading efforts to keep Maine special. As part of our ongoing efforts, we  look to you, our NRCM Rising membership of young professionals, for your  priorities, your input on our work, your knowledge and networks in Maine, and your feedback on how we can best work together to sustain Maine.

By getting involved with NRCM Rising, you’ll have a chance to build skills and create lasting relationships with other conservation-minded people like you in their 20s and 30s across the state. Join us for a hike or paddle, and learn more about how you can be part of the new generation of leaders who know that a healthy environment is important for Maine’s economy and way of life. NRCM Rising is led by NRCM’s young professional staffers, with the goal to ensure that our generation is better poised to protect and enhance the nature of Maine and our quality of life.
