March 19, 2024 (6:15 PM) – Fighting Climate in your Back yard (and Front yard)


Mike Nowak will be our presenter. A lot of us are pretty unhappy about the direction in which our planet’s environment is headed. Unfortunately, many people also think there’s nothing we can do about it. That’s not exactly true. The decisions we make in our yards—especially if done en masse—can make a huge difference in saving plant and animal species and reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Mike will walk us through the basics—native plants (especially oaks), harvesting rainwater, reducing lawn area, composting and other gardening decisions—all designed to help our yards conserve rather than deplete natural resources. Knowing you’re doing something positive will also give you some peace of mind, which, after the past few years, is near the top of everyone’s list. Visitors are welcome.
