Annual Meeting via Zoom

October 3, 2021 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm

Out of concern for our shared community, we are shifting our Annual Meeting from an in-person event to a online webinar. The persistent Covid case rates in our watershed have caused us to forgo an in-person celebration. Health and safety come first. Nonetheless, we are still excited to join together for an afternoon of education and updates!

Starting at 3:30pm, we’ll share a year of success along with our plans for the future of conservation and public access in the Georges River watershed. Alvin Chase, our Board President, will emcee the meeting and introduce the keynote speakers, ScrapDogs founders Davis Saltonstall and Tessa Rosenberry.

Davis and Tessa will share their story of launching their community composting business in 2018 and discuss why waste is such an important issue concerning conservationists, including how composting can help tackle the problem of emissions from food waste. Focusing on soil health can add another beneficial climate lens for those concerned about local carbon cycles and future agricultural policies and practices.

We will then conduct our Annual Business Meeting where you, our members, will have the opportunity to vote on incoming board members, thank departing board members, and hear details regarding yearly activities at the Land Trust. Plus, we’ll introduce our ambitious vision to protect and share the watershed through 2026!

Both organizations are thrilled to be co-hosting this Zoom gathering. We hope to “see” you there! Everyone is encouraged to participate – members, donors, volunteers, and members of the public who would like to find out more about what these two organizations do and how to get involved.
