Lisa Pohlmann, CEO of Natural Resources Council of Maine (NRCM) announced today, “It is with great sadness that I report NRCM has lost one of our very good friends. The Honorable Nathaniel P. Reed passed away yesterday after an accident while fishing in Canada. Nat was a 20-year member of NRCM and a generous supporter, as well as a member of our National Advisory Board.
“He would be delighted to know that our federal team is still fighting for the Endangered Species Act, legislation that he helped craft while serving as deputy secretary of the Department of the Interior and that was passed in 1973.
“All of us at NRCM send our condolences to Nat’s family. He will be missed.”
