Living Locally: A Conversation About Knowing and Connecting with Community
What do you know about geology and history of your hometown? What do you know about local flora and fauna, agriculture, energy, development and environmental issues? What do your children know about these topics?
Nashua River Watershed Association (NRWA) invites you "Living Locally: A Conversation About Knowing and Connecting with Your Community" Thursday, March 20, 7 p.m. at NRWA River Resource Center, 592 Main St. (Rt. 119), Groton.
We all lead busy lives, occupied with work, home, and a barrage of information about national and international issues. We don't always take time to know and connect with our home communities and habitats. But frequently, solutions found for local problems can lead to solutions for bigger issues.
Conversation will be led by Tim Castner, a veteran social studies teacher at Nashoba Regional High School. Tim has taken a recent sabbatical to develop a new interdisciplinary course on this subject for his students, but the topics are of equal interest to adults. We'll discuss how to learn about the subjects of importance to our communities and how to better understand our communities and engage in the real challenges that face them. Free and open to the public.
Pre-registration appreciated by contacting Al Futterman , NRWA Land Programs Director, at (978) 448-0299, or email AlF@NashuaRiverWatershed.org.
