Maine Environment Fall 2018: What’s Inside!
In this issue of Maine Environment, we feature an important story by NRCM Climate and Clean Energy Project Director Dylan Voorhees about Central Maine Power’s proposed 145-mile transmission line through Maine, to bring power from Canada to Massachusetts. He explains NRCM’s work and our reasons for opposing this project, which is a bad deal for Maine. It also has a sidebar of information about how you can get involved to stop the CMP transmission line.
We feature our new School Food Recovery Handbook, created to help Maine schools reduce the amount of food waste they produce and pay to dispose of each year. Download or order your copy of the Handbook or contact our Sustainable Maine team to find out how you can get your school involved in composting, school gardens, share tables, and more.
This Maine Environment also includes information about five new members of our Board of Directors, who joined us in November 2018.
Read about our 2018 Conservation Leadership Award recipients, including Hoddy Hildreth, who received our Lifetime Achievement Award for his decades of public service in conservation and as a business voice for the environment, and our People’s Choice Award winner, Robin Robinson of Brunswick.
Finally, check out our new blog posts, information about our annual Polar Bear Dip & Dash, which happens each year in Portland’s East End, and how to get your very own Nature of Maine wall calendar, filled with beautiful Maine photos from our members.
