Natural Resource Network

natural resource network for webNatural resource guidelinesThe Natural Resource Network was formed in order to begin to rebuild the critical understanding between Maine’s policy makers, citizens, and natural resource sector. We have joined together to identify and articulate the ideas and goals that are considered indispensable to the future of our sector.

Our goal is to work together as a network to help inform policy makers and Maine citizens in the interest of strengthening Maine’s natural resource businesses. We speak from a range of perspectives, but what ties us together is our desire to be able to continue to use responsibly Maine’s land and water for both business and pleasure.

The group meets regularly during the legislative session to review legislation and discuss policy positions.
