The Community Resilience Partnership is a program by the Governor's Office of Policy Innovation and the Future (GOPIF) with the goal to help Maine communities fund projects to reduce energy use and costs, transition to clean energy, and improve climate change resilience through community action and service provider grants. Join us to learn more about local climate resiliency projects and how The Nature Conservancy is teaming up with communities across the state!
This Ted Exford Climate Stewards lecture is supported by Dave & Loretta (Exford) Hoglund.
