Climate Solutions: For your next car, buy or lease an EV!

The electric vehicle market is rapidly expanding as battery technology improves. The newer models have greater range, and there are more vehicle choices.

At the top of the line, Teslas get more than 300 miles per charge. The Chevy Bolt gets 259 miles, the Nissan Leaf gets 226 miles, and there are others!

If we are to meet the goal of 100 percent renewable by 2040, we need to convert our fleet of vehicles here to electric, with power coming from renewable sources.

A few facts:
• Electric vehicles require much less maintenance. Battery checks, brakes, and tires are the main things.

Stay Safe and Healthy on Island Trails

Martha’s Vineyard has a rich abundance of protected lands. Many remain open for walking, hiking, bicycling, and running, in strict accordance with state and local regulations. Heading into the winter months, the Island’s conservation groups continue to manage some properties differently to help ensure public safety and lower the risks of coronavirus transmission.

Winter hunting alert! Deer season is over, but hunting of other game is allowed in many areas. Please see detailed guidelines for each organization here.
