At NREC, our mission is to be a source of information for the public about the natural and cultural history of the Moosehead Lake region.  We have many programs designed for all ages throughout the year designed to educate residents and visitors about this truly remarkable wild area that we love.  Please take a few minutes and check out some of our programs and make plans to join us!  If you like what you see then perhaps you would consider supporting NREC.
