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.Take Action
Maine Won't Wait
Climate change threatens not only our health and safety but also 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.Take Action
Funding 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 unique.Take Action
Clean Air for All
The Biden Administration has set out some important goals around climate and environmental justice that align with AMC’s conservation policies, and now we want to offer some emphasis on issues we see as priorities at the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). We appreciate that there is much for EPA to do to fix the harm to the outdoors and our natural world from the last four years of air quality rollbacks.Take Action
State Conservation Funding
The programs and people dedicated to conservation in your state ensure the region’s outdoor resources are managed responsibly. They also work to make them accessible and welcoming to everyone. 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.Take Action
