NE Barnraising 2014

For some of us, the two-day Northeast Barnraising got started early Saturday with a high tide paddle on the Jones River. By mid morning, almost 30 members of the Public Lab community heard from Pine duBois and Karen Vale about Jones River Watershed Association and Cape Cod Bay Watch, and the rest of the day was spent in workshops on various current and emerging environmental tools. On Sunday we heard from Glorianna Davenport about the Tidmarsh Restoration Project and Living Observatory. The photos below are also in this Flickr album with a few others.

Pine did not equivocate about her position on the Pilgrim nuclear plant.
The crowd sourced these workshops for the afternoon.
Kaya had his workshopees disassemble his thermal fishing bobs and then reassemble them, so after dark it was a little hard to find ones that worked;)

On Sunday morning Glorianna presented a definitive summary of the history and status of the Tidmarsh Restoration Project & Living Observatory.
This gathering spot was just as perfect as it appears to be.
