50th Anniversary of Earth Day!
April 22, 2020
Due to the Coronavirus precautions currently in place, Metacomet is not sponsoring any public events this week. However, our properties remain open and we encourage you to visit! See the list of Metacomet preserved lands for ideas of places to walk. Or, you can organize your own family clean up of your street, your yard, or other space. Some towns have organized clean-ups with social distancing in place.
The theme for this 50th Anniversary of the first Earth Day is climate action. The enormous challenge — but also the vast opportunities — of action on climate change have distinguished the issue as the most pressing topic for the 50th anniversary. Climate change represents the biggest challenge to the future of humanity and the life-support systems that make our world habitable.
