At the Natural Resources Council of Maine (NRCM), we don’t give up. Our 58-year history shows just how determined we are to ensure clean air to breathe, clean water to drink, and protected habitats in our forests, rivers, and along our coastlines. You are an essential partner in this work to protect Maine’s environment.
#GivingTuesday is a special opportunity for you and others who love and appreciate Maine’s environment to donate in support of our efforts.
Our new video, above, puts the spotlight on what we have worked so hard together to protect.
#GivingTuesday reminds us about the power of giving. NRCM’s work would not be possible without you. Right now, Maine faces threats at both the state and federal levels. By donating today, you can help make a difference for generations to come. And, because your gift is doubled—thanks to two generous donors—your impact will go even farther to safeguard our land, air, water, and wildlife.
Your gift will support the outreach, education, and legislative work needed to protect and restore the environment that you and I cherish in Maine. NRCM staff members are at the State House every legislative session, making sure that environmental safeguards are protected and advanced. We are also currently working in dozens of schools around Maine to help them reduce their food waste, which not only wastes money but also contributes to climate change and other environmental problems. We are helping towns pass local ordinances to reduce use of single-use plastic bags and foam containers that pollute our land and waters. Now we are also closely following many attacks at the federal level that threaten our new Katahdin Woods and Waters National Monument and environmental programs that keep Maine a beautiful place to raise our families.
I hope you will take a break from your busy day to enjoy this one-minute video; it’s a wonderful reminder of why Maine matters so much. And please, support NRCM’s work to protect Maine with a special gift today.
Support from members like you enables us to safeguard our rivers and forests, our fresh air and sparkling lakes, our glorious mountains and bold coast.
Thank you for giving back on #givingtuesday. The nature of Maine needs you now more than ever.
– Lisa Pohlmann, NRCM Executive Director
