Empowering Maine's Next Generation of Environmental LeadersEmerging Leaders

CLICK HERE FOR A DETAILED FLYER ABOUT THE EVENT

 What Is MEEA For?

Imagine the first time you ever saw a moose, or explored a tide pool, felt the cool water of the ocean wash over your skin, climbed a mountain... Now imagine a life where you live only hour from the ocean in Maine but have never walked on the beach, never hiked a mountain, never heard the waves crashing, or seen the beauty of sand pipers in flight. Many economic barriers exist for many Maine children that could make this unbelievable statement their actual reality. At MEEA, we believe that ALL Maine children have the right to experience the unimaginable beauty of the sate we are so lucky to inhabit.

Today, MEEA is focused on smart growth: better access to funding for transformative projects, improving organizational function, and broadening our reach to a more diverse audience. In the past few years, MEEA has achieved success under all these measures.
