Did fumes from Maine’s polluted rivers really used to peel the paint off houses? Why did the 6,000 billboards that used to line Maine roads disappear? How has Maine led the battle against climate change?
Don’t miss the Maine Public Television premiere of an inspiring new documentary film that features some of Maine’s most important environmental victories and the people who helped to make them possible.
The film “Protecting the Nature of Maine: Fifty Years of the Natural Resources Council of Maine,” will air Saturday, February 6 at 11:00 a.m.; Sunday, February 7 at 1:30 p.m.; and Sunday, February 28 at 10:30 a.m. on the stations of the Maine Public Broadcasting Network.
The half-hour documentary was produced entirely in Maine and features stunning footage – from Rockport’s Beech Hill to Mt. Katahdin, Moosehead Lake, Acadia National Park and beyond. It also presents dozens of interviews with citizens across the state who bring the threats and accomplishments to life and remind us what can be achieved when concerned people come together for a cause.
