HUDSON – Green Hudson is introducing a new Climate Café series, kicking off on Oct. 18.
At the Climate Cafes, guest speakers will share information about the changing climate and how individuals can best help the future generations.
The first Climate Café will be about native plant gardens. The speakers for this café include Native plant experts Emilie Wilder and Alexi Dart-Padover. Wilder and Dart-Padover will share information on how people can support the environment by planting gardens with native plants, which attract bees, butterflies and birds to promote pollination.
The native plants also provide places for small animals to live and can serve as ground cover to help prevent flooding and soil erosion. Plus, they’re beautiful!
The Climate Café will be at 7 p.m. in Avidia Financial Center’s community room at 17 Pope St. During the café, there will be time for Q&A and light refreshments and juice.
