Quabbin to Wachusett: A Multi-town Massachusetts Land and Water Conservation Project with Leigh Youngblood
The Quabbin reservoir is the largest inland body of water in Massachusetts and was built between 1930 and 1939. Today, along with the Wachusett Reservoir, it is the primary water supply for Boston, some 65 miles to the east, as well as forty other communities in Greater Boston. Executive Director of Mount Grace Conservation Trust, Leigh Youngblood, will discuss the construction of the reservoir, the four lost towns of the Quabbin Reservoir, and the land, water, wildlife, and people that persevere there today. Many individuals living in the greater North Quabbin region where Mount grace conserves and stewards land have parents who experienced the relocation, keeping the legacy very much alive today. Constant encounters with landowners, foresters, biologists, surveyors, historians, artists, anglers, poets, and others inform a balanced perspective between the practical and the personal. LFGC and Cary Library are sponsoring this talk held in the large meeting room of Cary Library. Reservations must be made through the Library, click here.
Main Club Public Programs take place the second Wednesdays of September-November and January-May. In October we meet in the evening, and in April we have both day and evening meetings.
