Project Showcase and Panel Discussion

In late Spring 2021, a group of community members from the Town of Delhi were awarded a Climate Action Leadership Grant from DOAS as part of our Audubon in Action program. Join DOAS for this special program where you can learn what this group accomplished and how they did it, ask questions and be inspired to start plans for your own community climate action native plants project! Municipal officials and community members throughout the DOAS region are encouraged to attend!

This program is free and open to the public. Pre-registration is required.

A project steering committee spearheaded by DOAS Member, Kathy Mario consisted of 9 people consisted of community members who work in the field of environmental sciences or sustainability in their region.  By the time they began implementing their project, they had members of the village board, Delhi college professors, an educator in their area that works with NOAA, a staff person from their local Cooperative Extension, help from the Catskills Regional Invasive Species Partnership and others from the local community who committed to working with them and providing real support.  They created displays and informational handouts, started a facebook and web page and were great about tracking their data and recording participants and people who received free plants. 

  • Over 500 plants distributed
  • 230 participants
  • 600 people in households of participants
  • 180 participants who signed up to receive updates and educational information on the benefits of planting native plants.

The group will be continuing their efforts in Spring 2022. They have also been approached by the Village Beautification committee in Delhi to work with them in 2022 to transition village areas to native plants.  

We will be showcasing their project this special panel discussion program as a kickoff to our new native plant sale fundraiser to add funding into our ‘climate projects’ fund.
