Conservation Lobby Day

Conservation Lobby Day

Join us on April 10th!

Every year, Maine Conservation Alliance and the Environmental Priorities Coalition fill the Maine State House to let legislators know how much their constituents care about environmental, equity, and climate & clean energy issues. 

Conservation Lobby Day 2024 is scheduled for Wednesday, April 10.

Will someone be able to help me find my legislator?

Yes! We will have volunteers who are steeped in State House knowledge, as well as packets pre-made with your legislators’ names, pictures, and districts.

Do I have to be part of the Environmental Priorities Coalition to attend?

While the EPC is the hosting organization for Lobby Day, no, you do not need to be a part of the coalition to attend!  

Is it free?

Yes, Conservation Lobby Day is free! There should be no barrier to participating in our democratic process.
