Drawdown is when concentrations of atmospheric greenhouse gasses have peaked and are declining, thus, reversing global warming. Project Drawdown is a research and communication organization that has scientifically identified ‘solutions’ to reverse global warming, 80 of which are already in practice worldwide and 20 of which are in development stages.
Drawdown East End is a grassroots group of citizens representing all five east end towns, with the rewarding mission to actively engage our communities in solutions that reduce greenhouse gas emissions to achieve drawdown and reverse global warming.

The teens are behind us; toxic local water bodies remain with us. The twenties are our future. Safe, healthy landscape practices need to be in our future which means transitioning from conventional landscape practices to toxin free property management. This will require knowledge and an understanding of our impact on our own properties and clients’ properties. This educational forum, hosted by the Lake Agawam Conservancy (LAC), will include presentations by local experts who have decades of hands on experience with creating beautiful healthy ecosystems on clients’ properties.
Wednesday, April 22, 2020 marks 50 years of Earth Day. The first Earth Day sparked the passage in the U.S. of the Clean Air, Clean Water and Endangered Species Acts, and the creation of the Environmental Protection Agency.
The urgency has never been greater. Our world needs a united response for bold action.
On Earth Day 2020, we say enough is enough.
We say we believe in science. We say that everyone can make a difference.
We say that the protection of our planet and the well-being of the people who live upon it are the top priorities.
On Earth Day 2020, we say that we’re committing to vote, we’re registering to vote and we’re showing up to vote.
Human health and planetary health are inextricably linked.
