Programs focused on making a positive environmental impact in our community
About the series
Find resources and events that inspire you to have a positive impact on the natural world, literally in your own back (or front) yard. Wright Library's Local Ecology program series includes book discussions, talks from naturalists, and practical guides on what you can do to make a difference from your own neighborhood.
No events scheduled at this time. For now, follow the development of Wright Library's Native Plant Gardens.
