NEERS is returning to York Harbor, ME, for the Spring 2019 meeting! Join us in this southern Maine community established as a prosperous seaport, which later became a gilded-age summer retreat for the wealthy. Situated along the York River and with just over three-thousand residents, York Harbor looks out on the Gulf of Maine to the east offering breathtaking vistas of the ocean. This highly walkable community is a sweet and relaxing retreat. We hope you join us.
