NOVEMBER 2019 E-Newsletter:

Election Day is on Tuesday, Nov. 5, 2019. It is not as big of an election year – last year we voted for our Governor, next year we will vote for our next President. But these in between elections are really important for the true ground game, which is the game local conservation organizations are playing every day in the neighborhoods and communities that make Maine such a special place. Vote!
