Thinking Like a Watershed: Community-Scale Climate Adaptation and Resilience in the North Quabbin

Connor Stedman will present on Wed., September 30th at 7 p.m. via Zoom

The effects of climate change extend across property boundaries, and the climate solutions at our disposal must as well. This remote participatory community workshop held on ZOOM will look beyond the scale of an individual property, to watershed-scale resilience planning and climate adaptation. Come explore how landowners, neighborhoods, towns, and whole communities in the North Quabbin can collaborate to adapt to disruption and enhance how the region’s ecosystems work as the climate crisis deepens.

Connor Stedman, M.S., is an ecological designer, farm planner, and educator working to mitigate climate change while strengthening viable farm businesses and rural economies. Connor is a lead designer with AppleSeed Permaculture and Terra Genesis International, lead faculty at the Omega Institute’s Center for Sustainable Living, and an instructor and advisor in UVM’s Leadership for Sustainability program. He teaches regionally and nationally on responding to climate change through policy, planning, and design.

This event is jointly organized by Mount Grace Land Conservation Trust and North Quabbin Energy.

This workshop is limited to the first 100 participants. Register in advance for this workshop:
