Weston’s Series How to Live in the Country!

November 20, 7PM. 24 Hours of Reality: Truth in Action. Weston’s signature fall 2019 event is here! On November 20-21, Climate Reality is presenting 24 Hours of Reality: Truth in Action, a global conversation on the truth of the climate crisis and how we solve it. For one full 24-hour period, Climate Reality Leader volunteers trained by former Vice President Al Gore will hold public presentations and conversations on our changing climate in schools, community centers, workplaces, and more across all 50 US states and countries worldwide. For each audience member who attends our presentation (and fills out our form), we will plant one tree on their behalf, thanks to our friends at One Tree Planted.  It’s going to be a great opportunity to talk about what the climate crisis means for this community, as well as the solutions and actions we can take to make a difference.

Saturday, November 23, 10-11:30AM. Mason Bee House-Making Workshop. Join Woodcock Nature Center and pollinator pathway experts from Norwalk River Watershed Association (NRWA) to learn all about how to support gentle, solitary mason bees in your own backyard. Learn the importance of native pollinators and the negative impact of invasive species in the environment. Build your very own mason bee house using wood and invasive phragmites reeds to limit negative populations and promote native pollinators!
