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 2021 Explore Maine will help you enjoy so much of what our state has to offer. The Maine Legislature passed a budget that includes $40 million over four years to fund projects through the Land for Maine's Future program. To celebrate new funding for the first time since 2012, we share with you here a selection of public lands throughout 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 art, blogs, apps, and a summer road trip playlist! Don't miss Allison Wells' interview with John Banks of the Penobscot Nation, art to color by Maine artist Toki Oshima, and more, 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
