Land Trust/State Agency Retreat

November 21 - 22, 2019

Sign up here.

MassLand and the Executive Office of Energy & Environmental Affairs co-host an annual retreat for land trust and state agency staff at the Harvard Forest in Petersham, MA during the picturesque autumn season. This two-day gathering includes informative and engaging presentations on current land conservation issues and topics. This year's retreat will focus on the Role of Land Conservation in Climate Change Response. The keynote speaker is Marcos Marrero, the Director of Planning and Economic Development in Holyoke, who is promoting greenspace to reduce climate impacts in the city. There are opportunities to hear from health care professionals on public health outcomes of conservation, colleagues on their climate related initiatives, and engaging the next generation in conservation.
