Open Space Conference Webinars Available Online

The 2020 Massachusetts Open Space Conference, which became a series of six webinars when COVID-19 forced the cancellation of the in-person event, has posted its webinars online. 

The annual conference is a peer-to-peer learning event where volunteer members of municipal open space committees and conservation commissions share information about successful projects and possible funding sources. SVT AmeriCorps Member Sara Amish was part of the committee that planned the 2020 conference.

The six webinars from the 2020 conference are designed for anyone interested in the nuts and bolts of municipal open space projects:

  • The Municipal Vulnerability Preparedness Program
  • Creating Open Space Committees & Keeping Them Alive
  • Land Protection Basics: How a Community Can Protect Land
  • Stewarding Town Land
  • Navigating the Community Preservation Act
  • Outreach to Landowners in Your Community
