Explore Maine's Great Outdoors
Explore Maine 2022 includes our recommendations for places across Maine to explore, apps to help you identify plants and wildlife when you get there, good reads by NRCM members to enjoy at the beach or backyard hammock, and much more. Our theme for this year’s Explore Maine place picks is clean water, in celebration of the Clean Water Act (CWA), which turns 50 this year. We’ve included a piece by NRCM’s advocacy director Pete Didisheim, “50 Year of the Clean Water Act,” that reminds us how far Maine’s once-horrifically polluted rivers have come since the CWA—and that they continue to need our help. Registered Maine Guide and Master Gardener Ivonne Vazquez encourages us to be mindful that all water flows down. There are poems, photos, even a clean water word search. However you choose to spend your summer, we hope you enjoy it. Thank you for all you do for Maine’s environment. Let the adventures begin!
Don’t forget to buy your NRCM t-shirt featuring custom artwork created just for our supporters. We have made-in-the-USA caps and totes, too! And sporting camp and outdoor recreation discounts, too. Most of all, a big thanks to all of our members and supporters, for caring about the kind of Maine we leave for generations to come.
