    October 13th Movie Night



    Join MCAN and the Sierra Club as we host another movie night! We will be screening short films from producer and award winning children’s book author Lynne Cherry. The screenings will be followed by a discussion and Q & A with Lynne and stars of the short “Save Tomorrow”: Alice, Mari, and Lily.

    Each of these short films tells the inspiring story of a young person or group of young people and how they got involved with climate action, taking real meaningful action on climate change. The films are appropriate for all ages.

    We hope to see you there!

    This event is in collaboration with the Harvard Extension Environmental Club, and refreshments will be provided by Foodlink Arlington.

    Thanks to the Mass Energy Consumers Alliance, this is a “green event.” What does this mean? It means that all energy used during this night (the projector, lights, etc.) will be matched with clean, local wind power! To learn more about greening events, please visit their website:

    10/21 Deer Island Tour

    Join MCAN for a tour of the Deer Island clean energy site, which includes solar, wind, and anaerobic digestion. On Friday, October 21st, from 9:30AM to 11:30AM, join us at
    13775419_10154263401098847_8504362415964721801_n.jpgDeer Island in Winthrop, MA to learn more about anaerobic digestion as a clean energy source. This is a great opportunity to see clean energy up close and think about what additional on-site clean energy options your town might be able to take advantage of. 

    Located on a spit of land in Boston Harbor, Deer Island is not only a Sewage Treatment Plant - it is a clean energy powerhouse. In addition to protecting Boston Harbor from pollution (the plant treats waste water from 43 communities in the greater Boston area), Deer Island sources renewable energy from solar panels and wind turbines, as well as an anaerobic digestion facility, all of which will be part of the tour.  Click here to check out pictures from our tour over the summer.
                                                                                                                                                                     HOWEVER, we need signed liability release forms from all attendees by Tuesday, October 11th. Please sign up now if you are interested, and we will send out release forms.                              
                                              We hope to see you at this exciting event!
