Join us for the next conversation in the Knowing Your Landscape series on the Massachusetts Wetlands Protection Act, Tuesday May 9 at 7 pm at Sheep Hill or remotely.
Wetlands are critical ecosystems for water quality, water storage and biodiversity and because of this, they come with a number of regulations about the use of land around them. Come learn about the wetlands on your property and what you need to know to keep your land stewardship wetlands-friendly and regulations aware. We will be joined by Mark Stinson, the Western Regional Circuit Rider for MassDEP’s Wetlands program, who will walk us through the importance of wetlands, when wetlands regulations will apply to your land, and when/how to engage with your Conservation Commission.
Registration required for remote participation. Email for remote zoom link will be sent out Monday evening. For questions, contact email@example.com.
Knowing Your Landscape is a free, monthly series of talks and workshops designed to answer questions you might have about land stewardship, anticipate your concerns, and provide information and resources to landowners and land stewards. The series is jointly sponsored by our Talks on the Hill and the Working Lands/Working Hand programs. Participants in the series (and you may attend any or all) will learn about:
- the natural and productive components of the rural landscape,
- policies and regulations applicable to land conservation and management,
- land and natural resource management practices to keep things growing, and
- programs that support land stewardship by private landowners.
Bookings are closed for this event.
