Conserve 30% of Our Nation's Lands and Waters by 2030
Known as ‘30 by 30,’ this inclusive and bold vision for safeguarding America’s lands, waters, and wildlife habitat supports the efforts of everyone actively involved in conserving, stewarding, restoring, using, and enjoying nature. The 30 by 30 initiative would triple the protected lands and waters nationwide, providing new and more equitable opportunities for outdoor recreation, while also stemming the rapid loss of biodiversity and ensuring that nature-based solutions, such as forests and wetlands, are available to mitigate climate change impacts.
We Need Solutions for Clean and Equitable Transportation
Cars and trucks are the biggest greenhouse gas polluters. There is a regional effort to look at a suite of solutions to reduce our transportation carbon footprint that would modernize how we travel while considering equity and alternatives to fossil fuel powered vehicles. Ask your Governor to join the plan today.
State Conservation Funding
Tell your state senator and representative that trail development and maintenance, parks and forest management, and land conservation are essential and require robust funding for both projects and the state agencies dedicated to these activities.
Maine Won't Wait
Climate change threatens not only our health and safety, but our economy and way of life. We must act swiftly and boldly to confront carbon pollution. The good news is that Maine now has a detailed and comprehensive plan of action. You can help move that plan to reality. Contact your legislators and urge them to make climate action a priority.
Ask Your Legislators to Fund Land for Maine's Future
The popular and successful Land for Maine’s Future program needs your help. Over 30 years, the Land for Maine’s Future program has conserved more than 600,000 acres across the state, ensuring that some of our most beautiful and important places will remain open to all of us, forever. Now the program needs an infusion of funding. State legislators need to hear from us, their constituents, that we care deeply about access to the fresh air, open space, beauty, (and seafood!) that make Maine different.
Support Climate Action in Your State
The lack of leadership in addressing climate change at the federal level means your state leaders need to know that you support climate initiatives and energy efficiency investments at the state and local level. Let your Governor know where you stand.
