Welcome to Sustainable Arlington

Sustainable Arlington acts on a local level to promote climate stabilization and other important environmental goals.  We are a Town of Arlington Vision 2020 Environment Committee and a chapter of the Massachusetts Climate Action Network.

Do you have ideas for ways that Arlington can reduce home and Town energy consumption, speed up the switch to renewables, and manage our environmental resources more sustainably? If you do, please come to one of our monthly meetings listed on this website.

Thanks for visiting.

Outdoor education and work programs for the whole family

Habitat, the wonderful Audubon santcuary on Belmont Hill just across Rte. 2, offers enjoyable and useful outdoor education programs for the whole family.

Check out their Sept. 2016-Jan. 2017 catalog at  and note the Habitat Intergenerational Program.

Reminder: Please Water New Street Trees

We are experiencing prolonged dry weather. Please make sure new trees on your street have enough water. You can do this by filling the green bags at the tree base. If there is no green bag apply a slow watering method from a hose to the tree. Over 200 street trees have been planted by Arlington DPW over the past year. With your help they can provide decades of shade. DPW and the Arlington Tree Committee thank you in advance for helping these young trees to maturity.  Town of Arlington Notices

Solar PV Program at Arlington Public Schools

Six Arlington Public Schools now have solar panels installed on their roofs. To see real time data for what each school's solar system is generating in clean energy, go to the link below.  This dashboard went online earlier this year. Note: It may take a couple minutes for the data to download to your computer, so please be patient.
