It’s a new year, and I can’t tell you how excited and hopeful I am. When I look back at 2022, we saw incredible progress in the fight against climate change at both the federal and state levels, and in cities and towns across the Commonwealth. We saw our education programs ramping back up to full speed. And we saw people coming together to protect and restore lands that benefit plants, wildlife, and people. And we saw stunning fall foliage that served as a reminder that nature brings us deep joy.

Over the summer, I had the privilege of traveling across the state to visit our wildlife sanctuaries, see some of the amazing work we are doing, and meet with partners and supporters to hear what matters most to them. During these trips, I couldn’t help but be reminded of just how important nature is for the health of our planet and for our own well-being.
