Take Action for Maine's Environment

The Natural Resources Council of Maine will help you take action at a moment's notice on issues related to the protection of Maine's air, land, waters, and wildlife. Here are some ways to get involved, and some tools to help:

Attend Public Hearings at the Maine Legislature

During the legislative session, there are many opportunities to speak out at public hearings on bills related to Maine's environment. Visit our bill tracking page to see a full list of upcoming public hearings, and then join us in Augusta to speak out in support of Maine's air, land, water, and wildlife.

Encourage Maine to Take Strong Climate Action for a Better Future

Maine Climate Council Working Groups are continuing to meet and develop recommended strategies for the state’s Climate Action Plan. Please join us in sending the message that Mainers can build a stronger future with concrete steps to reduce air pollution and transition to clean energy.

Support Land for Maine's Future Funding

The Land for Maine’s Future (LMF) program has helped protect some of Maine’s most iconic places like Tumbledown Mountain, Gulf Hagas, and Mount Agamenticus. LMF hasn’t received new funding since 2012, and it’s now out of money. We need your help to protect more special places for future generations to enjoy! Please contact your Maine lawmakers using the link below to urge their support of LD 911.

Support Recycling Reform for Maine

Join our movement to reform recycling in Maine, make it more efficient, and reduce the burden on taxpayers. We’re calling on lawmakers to adopt a solution that is used around the world to make corporations share in the cost of delivering recycling programs. Sign our petition for an “extended producer responsibility for packaging” law. Learn more about the details.
