Mattapoisett’s Changing Climate

February 25 @ 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm

On Sunday February 25 from 1:30 – 3:30 pm, The Mattapoisett Democratic Town Committee will sponsor its second in a series of Speakers’ Forums in the downstairs public meeting room of the Mattapoisett Public Library. Light refreshments will be provided and a $10 donation is requested.

We will discuss climate change and its effects on Mattapoisett and what residents can do to prepare. Our speakers will include Mike Huguenin from the Mattapoisett Land Trust (MLT), who will lead a panel of other local residents who have been involved in climate change issues. Mr. Huguenin, along with the MLT, have been working on projects aimed at reducing carbon emissions as well as making our lands more resilient to climate change. The MLT has been the recipient of numerous grants to study restoration of our salt marshes and has partnered with other state and local organizations to accomplish this goal.

Mr. Huguenin will be joined by Mattapoisett resident Chrystal Walsh who has been involved locally with climate change issues for many years, along with Marissa Perez-Dormitzer, also a resident of Mattapoisett and District Waste Manager for the Greater New Bedford Regional Refuse Management District. Ms. Perez-Dormitzer will discuss recycling and its importance to our environment. For more information about this Forum, please contact Nicky Osborne at 508-988-5205.
