RE Sources empowers the people who live here — children and adults alike — to do all they can to protect our home. More specifically, the organization provides individuals with the tools they need — key information, citizen trainings and workshops, and volunteer-led field programs — to actively safeguard our marine waters, rivers, lakes, beaches and air. In fact, RE Sources now oversees a number of programs designed to reduce air and water pollution and encourage waste reduction and recycling throughout the region.
This place we call home is a very desirable place to live because of its remarkable beauty, recreation options — skiing, sailing, biking, kayaking, hiking, backpacking and more — and relative affordability. These are things we value, as do the newcomers who move here each year. But more people means more stress and strain on those resources, particularly our air and water, that make our home so attractive. That’s why the work of RE Sources is becoming increasingly critical.
