During challenging times, working together as a community is more important than ever. As we all adapt to the evolving coronavirus situation, the health of Kestrel Land Trust’s community is our top priority.
To limit the potential spread of the virus, Kestrel is following the recommendations of the Massachusetts Department of Health to implement social distancing. We have postponed our March programs, including the Climate Change & Your Community presentation in Southampton and Open Space Networking Gathering in South Hadley. We hope to reschedule these programs at a later date.
The following events are currently scheduled next month, and we’ll provide updates as April approaches:
- Exploring Vernal Pools with Molly Hale: April 4
- To Understand a Tree with Bob Leverett, an interdisciplinary art and science project: April 11
- Additional April programs will be posted on our website if circumstances allow
We have also decided to close the Kestrel office to the public at least through the end of March. Staff are generally working remotely and we’ll be conducting meetings by video conference. During this period, the best way to reach staff members is by email; general inquiries may be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll monitor our office phone system for messages left at (413) 549-1097 and will respond as quickly as possible.
As updates become available we’ll post them here. If you’re not on our eNews list, you may subscribe here to receive updates in your inbox.
As our members are well aware, being outdoors in the fresh air is a great way to boost physical and mental health during this stressful and uncertain time. Take this opportunity to explore a new trail in the Valley using Kestrel’s Trails for Everyone Maps.
