Mount Grace Land Conservation Trust will celebrate #GivingTuesday, Dec. 1, with a special presentation by local wildlife photographer Jeff Blanchard via Zoom. Starting at 7 p.m., Blanchard will share his photographs of wildlife in the North Quabbin region and the stories of taking those shots.

As a nonprofit protecting land in the North Quabbin region and beyond, Mount Grace hopes to inspire generosity for land conservation on #GivingTuesday for the benefit of local wildlife. Every gift made to Mount Grace on Dec. 1 will be matched up to $3,000.

Funds raised through the event will support the conservation of farms, forests, and public spaces for recreation. “We’re very excited about plans for a new canoe access point to the Connecticut River on protected land in Montague,” said Marielena Lima, “and we have also been able to complete our fourth Whole Farm Forever project, the conservation of Sunset View Farm in Winchendon, thanks to online support. I hope you will join us to enjoy Jeff’s amazing images and to support the land.”

Partnering with Red Apple Farm in Phillipston, Moon Hill Brewing Company in Gardner, and Element Brewing and Distilling in Millers Falls for this event, Mount Grace encourages all to shop locally and purchase their cider or beer to enjoy during the show.
