The Waltham Land Trust is extremely excited to welcome to Waltham David Gessner, author of My Green Manifesto, and Dan Driscoll, who in the 1990s was the "new kid" at what is now the MA Dept. of Conservation and Recreation and was offered at that time to "take a look at the Charles" as a distraction. Dan absolutely took a look at the Charles, and worked through several challenges to make the river the gem that it is today. In My Green Manifesto (available for sale at the event), Dan explains to David the ups and downs of the battle as the two journey down the mighty river from source to mouth in leaky canoes and kayaks. They also discuss what it means to be an environmentalist these days, and they'll share their thoughts with us at this special event that we've been trying to organize since the book was published in 2011!
To get an idea of what to expect, watch this YouTube video David put together to promote My Green Manifesto. Goofy! Then go get yourself a copy and read this funny, insightful, and inspiring masterpiece.
The Waltham Land Trust will be talking more about the event on their website, and in the press, so stayed tuned. This is going to be huge!
The event is free but donations are always appreciated...
