Dear Bennington County,

We're excited to invite you to the Bennington County Community Resilience Forum, a powerful event designed to strengthen our community's resilience in the face of the emerging challenges of our changing climate.

We've brought together an amazing panel of experts and agency representatives to present to you what they think are the best paths forward that we can take to increase our capacity to meet the challenges that face us.

But it isn't up to the experts, it's up to you.

Attendees will take part in a paid focus group after listening to the panel, and will vote on the what you think the District and our Partner agencies should focus on for the coming year.
