Maine Environment Summer 2022: What’s Inside!
In this issue of Maine Environment, we feature a story about our work to expand the Maine Ecological Reserve System through passage of legislation during the 2022 session. As Maine’s environment faces growing threats from development, pollution, invasive species, biodiversity loss, and climate change, it is more important than ever to protect at-risk animals and plants, and to ensure ecosystems remain intact.
In this issue you can also read about our work during the legislative session to pass important climate legislation, especially one that will tie Maine’s electricity grid planning to climate goals.
This issue also includes our 2022 Explore Maine publication, full of great places to explore, books by NRCM supporters, a celebration of 50 years of the Clean Water Act, cool nature apps, and even a word search!
