We are pleased to announce that Lisa Mosczynski and Susan Speers, volunteers with Metacomet Land Trust, will be joining us with a program on “Bringing Earth Day Home.” The program will introduce the conservation group, with a focus on its work to preserve open space in Franklin since 1988. Metacomet is a member-supported nonprofit which serves 15 towns and is based in Franklin.
To mark the 52nd anniversary of Earth Day on April 22nd, Mosczynski and Speers will share a slide presentation on the group’s conservation work, education programs, and behind the scenes assistance to landowners and towns wishing to permanently preserve natural habitat. Metacomet’s local efforts include helping Franklin to connect town open space and Metacomet’s land. Metacomet is a 501-(c)-3 charity. More information can be found at www.MetacometLandTrust.org.
