Reinstein Woods Offering Virtual Lunchtime Talks on Sustainability

New York State Department of Environmental Conservation's (DEC) Reinstein Woods Environmental Education Center is inviting the public to learn about sustainability. Virtual lunchtime sessions about sustainability will be held Thursdays at noon from April 8 to 29, 2021.

"Many people are aware that we need to take drastic action to avoid the worst effects of climate change," said Reinstein Woods Center Director Meaghan Boice-Green. "Whether you live in an urban apartment, a suburban townhouse, or a rural farm, and no matter your income level, there are steps you can take to address this critical problem."

The half-hour virtual sessions will examine tools and incentives available to help people remove fossil fuels from four areas of life-electricity, food, transportation and money. Each participant will receive a curated list of resources to enable them to take action, including many actions that will save money. Participants can register for any or all of the sessions. To register, visit the Reintstein Woods website. For more information call Reinstein Woods at (716) 683-5959 or email
