upcoming events & Activities

Meet us at the Climate Update at the Library

We are very excited to finally have permission to hold an in-person event at the Library. Come meet members of the Chelmsford Climate Action Team to hear an overview about the Climate Action Plan being developed by the town’s Clean Energy and Sustainability Committee to address Chelmsford’s net-zero emissions goal.  Following the presentation, we will have a brief Q&A and then an opportunity to meet and greet each other.  Light refreshments will be offered.

Monthly member meeting

Hosted on the second Monday of every month at 7:30pm.  These meetings are not content-focused.  They’re about accomplishing our goals around town, so the conversation largely revolves around strategy, priorities, and logistics.  If you’d like to attend, just reach out to us and we’ll send you the link for the Zoom meeting.
