For anyone in SE Mass, this is an important read:


Similar to Ard's blog on the loss of Salmon stocks in Alaska (I read your work Ard ; ) ) and as stated in the above article, these kinds of losses won't make headlines or the evening news. Indeed relatively few will even notice. Is this really progress?

Good news on this. The Red Brook headwaters conservation land was removed from the zoning change and deemed off limits for development by the selectmen.

It is an awesome success story and the chapter has done tremendous work over the years. There is a TU Chapter meeting tonight so I'm looking forward to greater details.

This is great news, thanks for the updates! I lived in central MA for a few years. They seem to have been able to strike a decent balance between population growth and conservation but it’s a delicate balance that could tip the wrong way at any time. Let’s hope that locals keep pushing things in this direction.
