Saving us-Working Towards Climate Resilience

     Does it strike you that the weather is getting gradually weirder?  Do you worry about the unwelcome weather and climate changes you see and read about, both locally and nationally?  Do you wonder, ‘What can I do to make a difference?’  If so, this free 3-part series on climate change will offer you factual information from two climate experts, identify practical ways to tackle the challenges ahead, and invite conversation that brings an American ‘can do’ spirit to dealing with a hotter world.

This series is hosted by Easthampton’s Emily Williston Memorial Library in partnership with Voices for Climate, a Granville-based community group.
