This fall, in collaboration with local experts, we organized a series of climate and ecology events to increase awareness of the importance of protecting our environment while exploring the outdoors and learning something new. This series has been well received and has reached over 30 people in 3 months.
We’ve featured a variety of professional and community experts, including Ned Swanberg, Floodplain Manager with the Department of Environmental Conservation; Dave Muska, Naturalist and Founder of Ondatra Adventures; and our very own Luke Foley. These speakers led workshops and outdoor adventures on floodplain protection, animal tracking, and changing foliage respectively.
In 2024, we'll have workshops on forest bathing, bear signs, sugar mapling and so much more. We’re thankful to our community partners for leaning in and helping us kick-start these community engagement opportunities. We plan to continue hosting these monthly events as they seem to effectively raise awareness about climate change and the world around us and inspire people to take action to protect our environment.
