XR Talk at Petersham Earth Day
April 28, 2019, 4 p.m.
A combined, all-day "Petersham Earthday-Arbor Day 2019" series of events, games, and programs for people of all ages are scheduled for Sunday, April 28, starting at 10:00 a.m. on the Petersham South Common as members of the Petersham Forest and Shade Tree Committee plant trees in memory of Stephen Boudreau and Brian Miner and provide free ironwood tree seedlings as long as supplies last. The committee will also provide a map and clues as part of a "Trek des Tree" exploration of trees and local history in a self-guided walking tour, where you can earn points at each tour stop for prizes.
There will be talks on local agriculture, indigenous history, climate change, resiliency, and conservation.
At noon, there will be a potluck lunch at the Petersham Unitarian dining room.
At 4:00PM, Dave St.Germain will be introducing Extinction Rebellion with a talk, "Heading For Extinction (And What To Do About It)".
The Petersham Earthday-Arbor Day 2019 events are free and open to the public. Events are sponsored by the Petersham Forest and Shade Tree Committee in conjunction with the First Congregational Parish Unitarian, Petersham. For further information, contact Genevieve Fraser at (978) 544-1872.
