The Board and Staff of Save the Sound invite you to our 2020 Annual Meeting.
Resiliency During a Pandemic: How People and Nature Rebound
Thank you for being a member! Join us to celebrate all of the environmental victories you’ve made possible this year.
Date: October 8, 2020
Time: 4:00 – 5:30 p.m.
Please RSVP by September 30.
There will be four break-out sessions during the meeting. Please find the room descriptions below and register for the one that interests you the most.
1. Find it, Fix it, Fish it: Cleaning Up Long Island Sound
Learn how using technology for patrolling, response, and monitoring on the Terry Backer II allows Soundkeeper Bill Lucey to respond quickly to sewage spills, find and remove abandoned fishing gear, study bycatch and compostable bag breakdown in lobster pots, and conduct drone monitoring of our restoration sites.
2. The Work Continues: Changing Landscapes and Building Resilience
In the past twelve months, Save the Sound’s Ecological Restoration Team has completed a wide range of projects to restore conditions for thriving rivers, neighborhoods, and coastal areas. At the same time that your support was helping us enact change, the context within which that work happened shifted dramatically. Join us as we share the results of a year of restoration construction around Long Island Sound, discuss how investment in resilient ecosystems and resilient communities are interrelated, and explore how our Ecological Restoration team is working to build resilience for the future.
3. Climate Change: Policy, Action, and Justice
As wildfires blaze, storms increase, and our federal government abdicates their responsibility to fight climate change, we are hard at work trying to transform CT into a climate leader. Wondering what’s on tap for the legislature? Curious about how those laws are implemented by state agencies? Want to help us diversify our voices by ensuring people of color and youth are heard? Join us for a discussion about our climate work and learn how you can get involved!
4. Protecting Lands you Love and Water You Drink
Now more than ever our endangered lands need protection. Our team will take you on an exciting tour of our urban, coastal forest, and island conservation projects, as well as our efforts to protect precious drinking water.
Please check back later for complete break-out room descriptions.
