February Speaker to Address Marshland Protection

Rotary Club February 2023 Speaker

The Rotary Club of Madison is an enthusiastic and engaged network of ordinary people doing extraordinary things to serve people in our local and global communities. In 2023 the Rotary is celebrating its 100th year of service to the Madison community. At the Rotary’s weekly meetings, the Club plans and reports on its service projects, and guest speakers present on a broad range of topics that are of interest to the community. Rotary meetings are held each Thursday in person at the Madison YMCA on Kings Road. The Club meetings start at 7:45 and conclude at 8:30. For February, its featured speaker, on February 9, will be Elizabeth Semple.

Ms. Semple is the Climate Resilience Manager for the New Jersey chapter of The Nature Conservancy. The Nature Conservancy has grown to become one of the most effective and wide-reaching environmental organizations in the world. Thanks to more than a million members and the dedicated efforts of our diverse staff and over 400 scientists, it impacts conservation in 76 countries and territories. In her talk, Ms. Semple will outline threats to marshlands in New Jersey and efforts to both prevent environmental damage and techniques for restoration of the marshlands that are critical to New Jersey’s environment.

To make its meetings widely accessible, the Club will hold the meetings both in-person and online. Interested guests should visit the Club’s website at madisonrotarynj.org for log-in details.
