Shaping Climate Resilient Communities

Planned community designed with sustainable LID techniques

Sustainable Planning & Development

Mass Audubon created the Shaping Climate Resilient Communities program in 2009 to help the fastest-developing communities in Massachusetts chart a more sustainable and climate resilient future. 

We partner with land trusts, watershed associations, municipalities, regional planning boards, state agencies, and others. Program services include workshops, research, and technical assistance for residents, municipal officials, and businesses.

Support Us

The Shaping Program was established through the generosity of a loyal Mass Audubon friend. You can help us assist communities in preserving their town’s special places.
