After a long hiatus we are pleased to announce that we will be holding this year’s annual meeting in person, Sunday March 20th. Refreshments will be ready at 2:30 PM and the meeting will start at 3:00 PM. The meeting itself should last somewhere around ninety minutes to a couple hours, but the doors will be open into the evening for those who want to hang out.
Brad Chase – Diadromous Fishers Project Leader at the MA Division of Marine Fisheries
Brad is no stranger to the Jones River Landing, he has been a frequent collaborator on our projects, and spoke at our last in-person meeting, which took place shortly after the Elm Street dam removal. Brad is an expert on the diadromous fish in coastal Massachusetts and will be sharing his knowledge on fish passage in the Jones, as well as giving a brief update on the progress of the Forge Pond dam fish ladder project. Next year we hope to have permits to cut a more fish-friendly ladder into the Brockton dam near Silver Lake High School.
Scott Bancroft – Architect at Habeeb and Associates
Our Landing Road neighbor, Scott is working with us on the Landing Maritime Resilience Planning – our effort to adapt the buildings to predicted rising sea levels. Scott has been particularly focused on the details of design for the new building layouts, and he will be presenting on the progress thus far.
