Speakers Series

Since the year 2000, ACRE has been presenting an annual series of lectures by environmental experts with the goal of both entertaining and educating residents of Chelsea about environmental issues. Subjects have ranged from Chelsea's wild birds, fish and frogs, to the geology of the region; and from climate change in the Arctic and Antarctic to naturalizing your garden. We are always looking for new ideas and speakers!
