Join Mass Audubon for two interactive, half-day workshops entitled "Community Resilience in the Taunton Watershed" to identify what keeps our communities healthy, where we are vulnerable to weather, and how green infrastructure can solve many of the challenges we face in the Taunton Watershed. The first workshop will be held on Friday, June 9 from 9am to 1pm in the Great Hall of the Halifax Town Hall (workshop #2 is on Friday, June 23).
The first workshop will include Context: Identifying our local assets and vulnerabilities. An interactive exploration of natural and built assets in your community, discussing vulnerabilities and sharing ideas to protect them and Science: How climate affects us in Eastern Massachusetts. We'll cover the impacts of climate change on Eastern Massachusetts and educational tools to advance public awareness.
The second workshop will include Discovery: Mapping our green infrastructure - We will identify local green infrastructure areas, prioritize their protection, and identify the steps you can take to preserve the benefits they provide and Solutions: How to implement what we’ve learned - We will discuss some examples of successful green infrastructure implementation, how to navigate bylaws and zoning regulations, and what policy tools are available to you to implement similar strategies.
