17th Annual Land Trust & State Agency Retreat

Thursday, November 12 (2 pm - 6 pm) and Friday, November 13, 2020 (8:30 am - noon)

Agenda

Register for Thursday's session here. Register for Friday's session here. Participants are encouraged to attend both days. 

Intended for staff of Massachusetts land trusts and state agencies involved in land conservation to build relations and learn together, this two-day Zoom conference, hosted by MassLand and the Executive Office of Energy & Environmental Affairs, will focus on "Building Racial Justice, Equity and Inclusion into Our Work". It will include breakouts for targeted discussion topics, keynotes, proposed in-person regional field trips, and fun evening activities.

Retreat organizers are seeking volunteers to lead site visits on the morning of Thursday November 12th highlighting conservation projects that meaningfully address equity and inclusion. Volunteers are also sought to describe such projects in 6-minute "lightening presentations" on Thursday afternoon. If interested in either of these opportunities please contact robert.oconnor@state.ma.us
