What To Do About Solar Energy...
We know that the need for renewable energy is clear. Fossil fuels are putting the environment at risk. Fuel costs are volatile while pollution and climate change threaten our security and future. Solar energy and energy efficiency are key to protecting the environment and growing the economy. They help tackle climate change and promote energy independence. Experts will join us to answer the many questions you may have regarding solar energy from the installation, to the costs and the options of owning or leasing.

A Night of Wildlife, Rats And Raptors
Please join us to welcome wildlife rehabilitator, Annie Mardiney as she shares her joys and the hardships of caring for injured wildlife. Learn what to do when you find baby birds that have fallen from their nest, orphaned bunnies or an eagle tangled in fishing line. Learn what you can do to prevent injuries and death to our beautiful wildlife from asking your town to install fishing line recovery tubes, to changing the type of rat poison or pesticides you use. Annie will be bringing some very special raptor (owls and hawks) guests with her. She will have some slides to share and lots of handouts.
