Upcoming Bangor, ME Listening Session Provides Opportunity to Share Ideas and Reconnect Americans to the Great Outdoors

WHAT:  
President Obama recently announced his America’s Great Outdoors initiative to address the challenges, opportunities, and innovations surrounding modern-day land conservation and the importance of reconnecting Americans to the outdoors. “Listening sessions” will be conducted around the country in order to learn from local communities directly involved in finding grassroots solutions to conserving our land and waters and reconnecting Americans to the great outdoors. 

WHO:   
Representatives from the Obama Administration and local leadership from the U.S. Department of the Interior, U.S. Department of Agriculture, the Council for Environmental Quality, the Environmental Protection Agency, National Parks Conservation Association, conservation advocates, community leaders and citizens from across the state.

WHEN:  
Thursday, September 2nd
3:00 to 6:00 p.m.

WHERE:
Bangor Civic Center
100 Dutton Street
Bangor, Maine 04401

WHY:   
The National Parks Conservation Association (NPCA) is calling on the Administration to give our national parks a prominent place in any forward-thinking initiative surrounding conservation in our nation. From the volcanoes in Hawaii to the Great Smoky Mountains, our national parks provide some of the best means of connecting Americans, young and old, to America’s great outdoors, and preserving the natural and cultural diversity of our nation. In Maine, there are three iconic national park sites; Acadia, the Appalachian Trail, and the Allagash River, with the potential for more and plenty of other great wilderness areas to be protected.
