We invite you to join us for a Community Conversation on Clean Water and Climate Resilience at the Ludlow Auditorium on Thursday, November 9th.
As we work towards repairing the damage caused by this summer’s flooding, it’s important that we explore ways to increase Vermont’s resiliency to major flooding events. We know that there are preventative solutions available to protect people’s lives and prevent future disasters, and now is the time to collaborate with the legislature to transform these possibilities into reality. One key aspect we will focus on is safeguarding our river corridors, riparian areas, and wetlands to ensure they effectively absorb floodwaters.
This event will provide a space for meaningful discussions among community members, legislators, and local experts in the field, aiming to identify the necessary policy shifts that will protect our communities from future disasters and ensure clean water resources for everyone’s enjoyment.
Join us for an engaging roundtable discussion with community members and expert panelists from the Connecticut River Conservancy, Trout Unlimited of the Connecticut River Valley, the Black River Action Team, Vermont River Conservancy, and the Vermont Department of Environmental Conservation on clean water and resilience, we will provide food and informational materials. Children of all ages are welcome and we will provide crafts for them to enjoy.
