Thinking Like a Watershed: Community-Scale Climate Resilience Planning for the Upper Valley

  • Bugbee Senior Center 262 North Main Street White River Junction, VT, 05001 United States (map)

The effects of climate change extend across property boundaries, and the many responses and solutions at our disposal must as well.  This participatory community workshop will zoom out from the scale of an individual property or farm to practices of watershed-scale climate resilience planning and climate adaptive design.  Come explore how landowners, neighborhoods, and municipalities in the Upper Valley can collaborate to help adapt to climate disruption and repair the larger web of life in our times of planetary crisis.

Tea and cookies provided. Donations encouraged. This event is brought to you by the Community Resilience Organization of Hartford, Sustainability Woodstock, and the Center for Transformational Practice.
