We are pleased to announce that 2009 was the Natural Resources Council of Maine’s 50th anniversary year!
Throughout 2009, NRCM celebrated the 50th anniversary of our work protecting the nature of Maine, now and for generations to come.
Founded on June 25, 1959, by a small group of volunteers working to protect the Allagash River, our homegrown, member-supported group has evolved to confront the most important environmental problems facing the state. In so doing, we have helped Maine to accomplish many model, first-in-the-nation successes that have helped keep Maine a special place.
Today, NRCM has more than 25,000 supporters from across Maine and beyond. The power of your voices, your actions, and your passion are why we continue to succeed. In celebration of our past, present, and future, we held "50 Events for 50 Years." Thanks to all of you who participated.
You have made NRCM the powerful organization we are today. You have talked to friends and neighbors, written to newspapers and legislators, testified at hearings, and given generously of your time and money to help win victories we can all be proud of.
Now it is time to reflect on all that we've learned and to galvanize our strength and courage for the challenges ahead. And most importantly, to celebrate the Maine we work so hard to protect.
