"Saving Massachusetts Forests for Climate, Nature, and People"

  • Mohawk Trail Regional High School Route 112 Buckland, MA (map)

ADMISSION: Free and open to the public

Massachusetts forests are vital in storing carbon to fight climate change, providing critical habitat for native plants and wildlife, preserving historic and sacred sites, and offering opportunities for nature-based recreation. Yet, almost all of our forests are currently open to resource extraction, which is undermining these values. We need to take action now to protect our forests, before it is too late.

Speaker Michael Kellett is cofounder and executive director of RESTORE: The North Woods, a Massachusetts-based conservation organization. With more than 30 years of experience working to protect forests, wildlife, parks, and wilderness, he will review our current challenges and suggest strategies for solving them.
