Presented by Henry Tepper, President, Massachusetts Audubon Society

Since the arrival of the Pilgrims, the Massachusetts landscape has been subjected to cycles of dramatic change, and each has had its impact on birds and wildlife populations. Recently, accelerating industrial and residential development and advancing climate change have made it more urgent to preserve open land and wildlife habitat while making selection of conservation targets more complex.

Mass Audubon has long been a regional leader in open-land conservation in the Commonwealth. In this program, Mass Audubon President Henry Tepper will place Massachusetts landscape change in historical perspective, assess the current state of land conservation, describe new conservation tools and approaches, and show how conservation organizations can work with local government to preserve an environment that meets the needs of humans, birds, and other wildlife.

Prior to becoming President of Mass Audubon, Mr. Tepper’s career ranged from leading a community land trust in the Hudson River Valley to management positions with The Nature Conservancy and the National Audubon Society, and pioneering large-landscape conservation in Chile.
