The Board of Directors of the Arlington Land Trust is pleased to invite you to join the 2023 Annual Meeting in person on Tuesday, January 23 at 7 pm. As usual, we will elect Board members, hear a brief Treasurer’s report, and provide updates on the proposed Thorndike Place development on the Mugar property and other local conservation projects.
We will meet in the Back Room of the Donut Villa Diner, 319 Broadway in Arlington Center. Light refreshments and beverages will be provided beginning at 6:45 pm.
Our guest speaker this year is David Santomenna, Senior Director of Land Protection at Mass Audubon. He will present the organization’s statewide vision for land protection with a focus on the Nature in the City program, the urban component of that vision. Launched in 2022, this program envisions a Massachusetts where all city residents—no matter their race, income, ability, spoken language or lived experience—have access to greenspaces that bring them joy, connect them to the natural world, and address the effects of climate change. The program is being piloted in four cities—Boston, Cambridge, Lowell, and Fall River—with plans to expand over the coming years.
Given the increasing prevalence of Covid and flu cases, we request that you take precautions before attending this meeting by testing, wearing a mask, or just staying home if you have any symptoms. Thank you.
