Demystifying Conservation: Learn How a Land Trust Works with ACT
Have you ever wondered what land trusts do behind the scenes? How we build and maintain trails? How we preserve working farms and forests? How we keep our communities’ water clean? Join us to learn all about it at 6 pm on Thursday, February 17th for a virtual presentation on the inner workings of your local land trust!
The Ammonoosuc Conservation Trust’s (ACT) Executive Director, Rosalind Page, and Conservation Projects Manager, Rick Walling will share the ins and outs of how we protect land for wildlife, forestry, farming, hiking, skiing, and many other uses in our neck of the woods.
Nationally, land trusts play a vital role in protecting local areas for clean air and water, wildlife, recreation, agriculture, and much more. ACT is your locally based land trust, with over 5,000 acres conserved over the last 20 years. Tune in on February 17th to find out more about how this all comes together!
