Join Kathleen Meil, Senior Director of Policy & Partnerships at Maine Conservation Voters and member of the Maine Climate Council's Steering Committee, for a look at the state's remarkable progress and the urgent work ahead.

This Ted Exford Climate Stewards lecture is supported by Dave & Loretta (Exford) Hoglund.
