Over the last 4 years, the O’Handley family has been working on shifting their household towards zero-carbon goals and has been able to significantly reduce their carbon impact. In this program, Susan O’Handley will delve into the why, the how, and the how much – demonstrating all the ways this transition has resulted in daily quality of life improvements in their 1902 Victorian farmhouse and the ability to save money on their monthly expenses. 

Birds & Climate Change: Survival by Degrees: 389 Bird Species on the Brink

This program will overview the challenges that bird populations are expected to face as climate change warming scenarios take place and will look deeper into the impacts on key local species. We will feature online tools that participants can use to gain information on projected trends in populations, changes in breeding and wintering habitats, as well as tools to help track these changes over time. We will also examine ways that people and our local communities can help to prepare for and offset some of these impacts.

She has been involved with local Audubon chapters for over 30 years and has served on the Board of Directors for the Delaware-Otsego Audubon Society since 2012 (10 years as a Co-President).
