Join eight local Audubon chapters and the Federated Conservationists of Westchester County for a Climate Change Boot Camp on Saturday, October 26. Participants will learn what to expect locally from climate change, and what is being done by state, county, and local governments to make a difference and prepare.

Don’t be discouraged and overwhelmed; get encouraged and inspired to take action.
The goal of this half-day session is to “Get Climate Smart!” by learning about local effects
of climate change, local, county and state responses and what you can do.
