Watershed Action Alliance of Southeastern Massachusetts' 2020 State of Our Waters will provide opportunities for meaningful interactions between residents and their legislators, educate both groups about critical water-related challenges and successful projects, and model democracy in action. The event will begin with time for informal conversation, followed by presentations by representatives from our member organizations and legislators, and will be capped off by small group visits to legislators’ offices from noon to 1 p.m.

WAA will address these topics:

- water quality, particularly as related to stormwater and wastewater;
- water quantity, especially balanced and equitable use and withdrawal; and

Panel Series Topics:

Apr 29th, Green Landscaping

Jack Ahern, Professor of Landscape Architecture at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, and this talk is Designing with Nature on Cape Cod and the Islands. His talk will explain how to preserve the special environmental and visual character of the Cape and Islands through an “ecologically-based” approach to landscape design. This approach starts with an understanding of the Cape and Islands’ native plants and plant communities, which are well-adapted to local soils and growing conditions. Ahern will discuss how these plant communities can be designed for landscapes where people live, learn, work, and play. His approach will be illustrated with examples of landscapes on the Cape and Islands that have applied this approach. The talk is a preview of Ahern’s upcoming book “Designing with Nature on Cape Cod and the Islands”.
