Revitalizing Ecosystems in Greater Boston to Survive Climate Change
Saturday, March 31, 2018 from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM (EDT)
Ecosystems across our highly developed region are threatened by climate change. Local ecosystems can help us to weather the coming climate shocks. These ecosystems are our allies, and there is much that we can do to revitalize them in our yards, streets, neighborhoods, parks, wetlands and waters. Come to this conference to be inspired and learn about current efforts and new possibilities for revitalizing ecosystems. You will leave with information on practical ways you can help right now.
Program: Keynote speaker Tom Wessels, author of The Myth of Progress, Toward a Sustainable Future, will address the critical similarities between ecosystems and human society. There will be presentations (in development) on the Ecology of Greater Boston Then and Now and a Survey of Current Ecological Conservation and Restoration Efforts. In afternoon workshops attendees will meet, connect with and learn from organizations that are practicing restoration and conservation of ecosystems in locations around the Greater Boston region: soils, trees, forests and other plants, wetlands, freshwater streams, lakes and ponds, coastal shores and salt marshes.
Cost: $10 via Eventbrite.
