Natural Resources Council of Maine CEO Lisa Pohlmann spoke as part of the Sunset Seminar series at the Camden Yacht Club on Wednesday, August 22 from 7:00-8:30 p.m. Lisa discussed current challenges facing Maine’s ocean waters as they relate to policy debates in Maine, and how NRCM is addressing them.
Guests learned about restoring sea-run fisheries through dam removal, promoting policies to address climate change, reducing single-use plastic materials, and fighting current federal proposals—like offshore oil and gas drilling—that could harm Maine’s environment. The Natural Resources Council of Maine works on such issues every day and can help you become involved, too.
Lisa has worked at and led advocacy organizations throughout her 37-year career in Maine. She has a PhD from the Muskie School of Public Service at the University of Southern Maine. A resident of Jefferson, Lisa has had a lifelong love of the outdoors, and regularly kayaks, hikes, skis, and camps across Maine.
This presentation was the final in a series of eight hosted by the Camden Yacht Club and was free of charge and open to the public. Donations at the door benefited the nonprofit Camden Area Youth Seamanship Program (CAYSP).
