WRL is launching a monthly lecture program beginning November 4th. Talks will take place on the first Thursday of each month from 7:00 – 8:15 p.m. Until future notice, WRL lectures will be on zoom; please register below. (A zoom link to the meeting will be provided by email.)
First Talk: Hank Art – Mohawk Trail Woodlands Partnership
The first lecture will be presented by Hank Art, Chair of the WRL Lands Committee and Research Associate for the Center for Environmental Studies at Williams College. He will discuss the Mohawk Trail Woodlands Partnership (MTWP) and his involvement with the program.
About the MTWP: The Mohawk Trail Woodland Partnership was established to be a shared forest stewardship collaboration among the US Forest Service, the Massachusetts Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs, 17 municipalities and a dozen public and non-governmental organizations in Western Massachusetts. This program, funded through grants from the U.S. Forest Service and the MA Executive Office of Energy & Environmental Affairs, is now into its third cycle of project awards, one of which was given to Williamstown for Planting of climate adapted trees on the Town Common (cost for the trees only – planting is being done with local matching funds).
