The Mount Grace Land Conservation Trust and North Quabbin Energy present, “Thinking Like a Watershed: Community-Scale Climate Adaptation and Resilience in the North Quabbin,” a virtual workshop set for Wednesday, Sept. 30, at 7 p.m. via Zoom.

Connor Stedman will lead this remote participatory workshop. All are invited to learn more about how landowners, neighborhoods, towns, and whole communities in the North Quabbin can collaborate to adapt to disruption and enhance how the region’s ecosystems work as the climate crisis deepens.

The effects of climate change extend across property boundaries, therefore the climate solutions at our disposal must as well. Join Connor Stedman, ecological designer, farm planner, and educator, for this 1½-hour workshop to learn about climate mitigation solutions that work with our natural ecosystems.

This workshop is limited to the first 100 participants, so please register in advance at More information is available on the Mount Grace website,

Mount Grace Land Conservation Trust is a regional land trust that benefits the environment, the economy, and future generations by protecting significant agricultural, natural, and scenic lands and encouraging land stewardship in northern and central Massachusetts.

North Quabbin Energy is an informal network in north-central Massachusetts, started in 2005, that supports and facilitates communication with people and town energy committees to share ideas and projects concerned with issues relating to energy use. Through this informal network of people and direct communication, we work to educate ourselves and our neighbors about the true social and environmental costs of our current energy consumption patterns. We also work to find ways of changing our individual and collective habits of energy use through conservation, use of renewable fuels, and support for local and regional enterprises that reduce our dependence on imported resources.

Many thanks go to Constellation, an Exelon company, for funding this event.
