November 18th – Roy Thornton – will present on how and why capped landfills can make excellent habitat for grassland birds and pollinators. He will also discuss progress in Niskayuna towards making the Blatnick Park capped landfill better wildlife habitat, competing interests for the acreage, and maintenance of the bluebird houses on the landfill.
December 15th – Holiday Celebration
January 20th – Millie Gittinger – long time ECOS member and avid traveler throughout her life, will share a visual journey of her exploration of the Appalachian Trail.
February 17th – Scott Stoner – he will speak on attracting birds to your backyard, which covers feed and feeders, water, shelter and weaves in some identification of common backyard birds.
March 17th – Corrine Hansch – Lovin’ Mama Farm – will discuss how their no-till system pumps out massive amounts of food and flowers using deep organic methods. This system regenerates the soil while sequestering atmospheric carbon and producing tons of food so that our community has access to delicious, organic produce and the farmer has great yields with a low overhead (no tractor required!). You’ll leave the presentation with the hopeful knowledge that healing, regeneration, and renewal are possible for our troubled climate, environment, and social communities.
