Community Conversation on Clean Water & Climate Resilience in Ludlow
You’re invited to join VNRC and partners for a Community Conversation on Clean Water and Climate Resilience at the Ludlow Auditorium on Thursday, November 9th. 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. The event will include an engaging roundtable discussion with community members and experts from VNRC, the Connecticut River Conservancy, Trout Unlimited of the Connecticut River Valley, the Black River Action Team, and the Vermont Department of Environmental Conservation. We will provide food and informational materials. We hope to see you there! Learn more and RSVP here.
Join LEAD-Vermont for an Electoral Candidate Training
Have you ever considered running for office or helping someone else in your community step up to run? Are you wondering what it takes to get on the ballot – and what it takes to win? If so, there is a great training opportunity coming up next month to introduce potential candidates to the ins and outs of successful campaigns! Leadership Education and Development (LEAD) – Vermont is pleased to be offering a training for Vermonters interested in running for elected office, or interested in supporting local candidates. The training will offer resources, assets, tools, and skills that are helpful in becoming an impactful candidate with a meaningful campaign. It’s also a great opportunity to connect more deeply and build relationships with like-minded colleagues and organizations. It is free for participants and is hybrid, with an in-person gathering on Saturday, November 11th, followed by three subsequent Monday evening Zoom sessions. Learn more and apply to participate here!
P.S. Middlebury College students and Connecticut River Conservancy have created a survey to understand how sediment was cleaned up in the wake of this summer’s catastrophic flooding. This research will be used to help develop recommendations to better protect human and environmental health in wake of flood events. Take their short survey here.
