Newsletter touts 2021 highlights New England

This past year, it was great for our New England staff, along with our members and partners, to get out on the streams once again to start chipping away at a backlog of projects since most work came to an abrupt halt right near the beginning of the 2020 field season due to Covid.

Thankfully the weather was cooperative and didn’t result in any major setbacks. (And fortunately Hurricane Ida spared our project areas.)

We’ve summarized a few of our best highlights from the past year, and included a look ahead to some of the work on the horizon, in a recent newsletter that was emailed to TU members in New England. For those who may have missed it, or for those outside New England who are curious to see what’s happening in the region, we’re posting the newsletter here.

The winter months have continued to be just as busy as everyone has been buried in all the planning, permitting, grant writing, and other tasks that are necessary to ensure everything is in good order for this coming field season. Along with looking forward to another successful year in 2022, I am pleased to announce we’ve welcomed three new staff to our team – Phil McGovern, Jesse Vadala, and Ed Hansalik. Read more about them below.
