Wonders of our Waterways
Amy Weidensaul, Director of MassAudubon
Ipswich River Wildlife Sanctuary

Sunday, April 7
Parish Hall at 12 Noon

In her presentation, Ms. Weidensaul will highlight the importance of our local waterways (rivers, streams, and lakes) to people, wildlife, and the environment. She’ll delve into the lives of wildlife that rely on freshwater resources from bugs to beavers and explore the watersheds as a source of drinking water as well as the issue of dam removal.

Ms. Weidensaul joined Mass Audubon in July 2018 with more than 20 years’ experience in the environmental field.

Light refreshments will be provided.

Hosted by the church’s Green Sanctuary Ministry Team with its mission of honoring the interconnected web of life by promoting environmental education and sustainability both within the church and in the larger community.
