Wilderness Society’s Peter McKinley will speak at ASLPT meeting

The Ausbon Sargent Land Preservation Trust is putting an anniversary twist on all its events throughout this, its 25th anniversary year. Its annual business meeting will be special, as well. On Sunday, October 21 at 3 p.m, ASLPT will meet at the historic Center Meeting House in Newbury, N.H. and the business part of the meeting will be greatly abbreviated to allow for a special guest speaker from The Wilderness Society, Peter McKinley.

McKinley joined The Wilderness Society in 2010, having worked in northeastern conservation and ecological research for the last 20 years. He is the Climate Adaptation Ecologist for the Northeast Region and will have some interesting and timely information to share about the current trends in climate adaptation.

“The Center Meeting House can seat over 220 people and we are opening this event to the public,” the release says. “We all have concerns for the environment and how climate changes will effect our Mt Kearsarge/Lake Sunapee Region and Peter [McKinely] will share his expertise and experience which should appeal to all.”
