Wellesley Recreation Department is pleased to partner with members of Sustainable Wellesley to present this series of informative workshops on living more sustainably.


Alex Keally, Presenter on February 5, 2014 (6.30-8pm)

Is solar right for me? Have you wondered if solar is right for your home? Join an expert for an introduction and guide to solar energy. Presenter Alex Keally will explain the technology, economics, and criteria for folks considering solar. He will share questions and tips homeowners should ask installers, and have Wellesley residents there to share their experiences. This is a great overview for homeowners and businesses.


Scott Bender, Presenter on January 22nd, 2014 (7-8.30 pm)

We are surrounded with opportunities to lower our impact on our environment, while saving money.

Scott Bender, member of the Town of Wellesley’s Sustainable Energy Committee as well as Sustainable Wellesley, will share a variety of easy to accomplish activities that individual households can do to save 10% reduction in energy usage. Hitting on  vampire energy issues, electricity efficiency tips and conservation, Bender offers a plan as well as  resources.


Join us for a thought-provoking presentation on the impacts and causes of climate changes, the actions we need to take, and what it all means for Wellesley, Massachusetts and the Northeast. The presenter, Quentin Prideaux, joined the Climate Reality Project in 2012, and was trained as a Climate Leader by former Vice President and Nobel Laureate Al Gore. He will discuss why some have been confused about the science, share the latest information on the climate crisis and provide specific ideas that you can do right now to reduce your carbon footprint.  Although the subject is serious, the tone will be easy to follow, positive, and lighthearted where possible. A question and answer period will be included. So whether you just want to know more, want to join a good discussion, or want to get serious about taking action, this session is a great next step.

Three dates to choose from: January 30; February 27th; and March 20th
All are from 6.30-8.30 pm.
