With everyone’s bellies full, our Executive Director, Ryan Mello, provided a rundown of our Top 10 accomplishments of the year. Lara Whitely Binder, from the Climate Impacts Group gave a presentation on the local impacts we can expect from climate change. 2015 was a fantastic year and so far in 2016 we’re keeping the ball rolling!
