Sunset Seminar: Protecting Nature in Maine’s Coastal Waters
August 22 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Lisa Pohlmann, the executive director of the Natural Resources Council of Maine, will discuss current challenges facing Maine’s ocean waters as they relate to policy debates in Maine, and how the Natural Resources Council of Maine is addressing them. NRCM is Maine’s leading environmental advocacy organization, with more than 20,000 members and supporters in Maine and beyond. Started by Maine people in 1959, NRCM is based in Augusta and is actively engaged in policy making and works statewide to protect Maine’s woods, waters and wildlife.
Learn 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.
