Meeting set for Wed., April 30th at 7 p.m. at Athol Town Hall. Get Involved! Working Groups will report on what they have done concerning communications with landowners, municipal outreach, messaging, research on conservation laws and Green Communities Act, and research on what is happening in other states.
