COMMUNITY: Oktoberforest

Join The Nature Conservancy in Massachsuetts for an "OktoberForest" celebration. Enjoy brews and snacks, and learn about the connection between beer, water and forests.

Why? Because if you like beer, you should love forests. America's forests are the source for more than half of our nation's water — and beer is 95 percent water. In the United States, forested areas equivalent in size to the state of Colorado are in need of restoration, so beer's main ingredient could be at risk. OktoberForest is a nationwide campaign from The Nature Conservancy about the connections between forests and beer.

At our local celebration, meet TNC staff hard at work protecting the state’s forests and waters, get to know a neighborhood Somerville brewery and join in on some “Tree-via” for fun prizes. The event is free and open to the public (under 21 must be accompanied by an adult), but space is limited so please register!
