We had a chance to learn about what other towns and villages in Westchester are doing for the environment at “Greening Our Towns,” organized by the Federated Conservationists of Westchester and the Greenburgh Nature Center.
Here’s a tiny sample of the projects that came up:
- Community Choice Aggregation
- Healthy Yards
- Greenhouse Gas Emissions Audit
- Walking School Bus, Walk to School Day, and Slow Down
- LED Streetlights
- Green Screen Documentaries
- Rain Gardens
- Leaf Blower Ban
- Love ‘Em and Leave ‘Em
It’s inspiring to see what our neighbors have been able to accomplish, and we look forward to learning from their experiences!
