The Land Council will host their 42nd Annual Meeting at the Nantucket Yacht Club on August 2nd at 5pm. As always, all NLC members are encouraged to attend and the general public is welcomed free of charge. The meeting will cover business essentials before moving onto a lecture and reception.
This year’s meeting will feature guest speaker Charles Costello from the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection. In conjunction with the Town of Nantucket and a grant from the NLC and Great Harbor Yacht Club, Mr. Costello conducted a detailed eelgrass survey of Nantucket. His results highlight the stark decline of eelgrass in the past few decades. Guests are invited to stay for a cocktail reception in the Governor’s Room after the formal meeting and lecture.
