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.
