Flipping the Switch on Light Pollution
Tuesday, May 22 – 7 PM

Learn about the effect that artificial light has on the environment, and what you can do to help.
Light Pollution is the wasteful use of lighting, which brightens the sky needlessly. Unlike other forms of pollution, reversing this trend could be as easy as flipping a switch.

Saw Mill River Audubon Society Presents: Predators
Thursday, May 24 – 7 PM
Croton Free Library

How do larger predators interact with changing landscapes? As sightings of coyotes, bobcats and bears increase in our rural-suburban landscape, the relationship between larger predators and human-influenced landscapes is of growing importance and interest. Dr. Melissa Grigione is a full Professor of Biology at Pace University. Her research interest is mammalian spatial ecology -- understanding how ecological and human-made elements influence home range size and location for particular species.  Dr. Grigione has worked with a range of species, including mountain lions, Florida panthers, bobcats, coyotes, and Florida burrowing owls. Her international research includes conservation of neotropical cats (ocelots, jaguars, jaguarundis) along the U.S.-Mexico border and conservation of Patagonia pumas in Chile.
