Every year we welcome friends new and old at our Welcome to Spring Dinner with a presentation of the year’s highlights. As we do on alternate years, this year’s dinner will be a community potluck. The evening will include our brief annual meeting and election of board members and officers followed by short presentations by our 2018 Larry Light Youth Scholarship winner. We’ll also have two short presentations about recent Saw Mill River Audubon travel to coastal California and to the wilds of central Nebraska to view a half-million Sandhill Cranes. Always a fun, friendly and entertaining evening, so reserve your spot now

Restoring Croton Point Grassland
Croton Free Library

Using state funding to its Soil and Water Conservation District, the County of Westchester is restoring valuable grassland atop the former landfill at Croton Point Park. Larry Weaner Landscape Associates is designing the project, which is intended to curb less desirable, invasive plants in favor of more ecologically friendly native plants to improve wildlife habitat, especially for birds. Come hear how the grassland restoration plan was developed and the timeline for this exciting and innovative project. Presenters will be Larry Weaner and Jenna Webster from Larry Weaner Landscape Associates.
