Explore Maine's Great Outdoors
Summer in Maine offers so many opportunities for exploration. Whether you choose to go out into the great outdoors or prefer a staycation close to home, our 2020 Explore Maine will help you enjoy so much of what our state has to offer. To coincide with Maine’s Bicentennial, we share with you here a selection of places that inspire us to protect the nature of Maine. With safe social distancing, they are ready to be explored and enjoyed. As always, we are featuring books and blogs by members, but this year we are also showcasing a few Maine artists who are NRCM members, some music, and a haiku by an 11-year-old member. There’s a piece in honor of the anniversary of the designation of the Allagash as a “wild and scenic” river, and a nod to the treasure that are Maine's ecological reserves. And, if you enjoy crossword puzzles, you will find a delightful surprise in this year's edition of Explore Maine! There’s more to enjoy, too, all as a way to celebrate the environment that we work together to protect. Be safe and find joy in Maine this summer —Allison Wells, NRCM Senior Director of Public Affairs & Communications
