Open Space Networking Gathering: Northern Region
January 27, 2020 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Landowners are making decisions on the future of land use in your town. Do you have the tools you need to help them make decisions about conservation and management?
On Monday, January 27 at 6:30 p.m., gather together for a moderated discussion with land conservation professionals and landowners who have conserved their forestland. Meet land trust staff, land management professionals, and dedicated conservationists, and network with other Open Space Committees and Conservation Commissions from towns like yours.
Panel discussion to include representatives and landowners from Kestrel Land Trust, Franklin Land Trust, Mount Grace Land Trust, and the University of Massachusetts, Amherst.
We welcome you to fill out this survey ahead of the event so that we can better tailor the content to your committee’s needs and interests. Find the registration survey here.
The event will take place in the First Floor Meeting Room at the John W. Olver Transit Center, 12 Olive Street, Greenfield, MA. Light refreshments to be served.
