We invite you to join us for a Community Conversation on Clean Water and Climate Resilience in Plainfield on Tuesday, September 12th.
As we work towards repairing the damage caused by the recent 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.
In addition to engaging discussions with expert panelists from the Vermont River Conservancy and the Friends of the Winooski River on clean water and resilience, we will provide food and informational materials. Children of all ages are welcome and we will provide crafts to keep them busy. Your participation is crucial in shaping our collective efforts towards a more resilient future. Let’s come together, share our insights, and work towards building a stronger and more prepared community in the face of future challenges.
