Annual Rockfall Symposia

Rockfall Symposia

Since 1986 The Rockfall Foundation has sponsored symposia on topics relating to balancing development and environmental conservation. Speakers and panelists represent nonprofits, town government commissions and agencies, universities and colleges, and state and local leadership.

Rockfall Symposia seek to:

  • help identify and explore emerging issues related to environmental sustainability and growth
  • inspire dialogue and creative collaboration among attendees
  • present options and strategies for developing and implementing effective policies.

Past topics have focused on open-space land management, development and protection of greenways, local food security, smart growth and sustainable communities, preserving regional character, effective planning, transportation, and green building.
