I have a sneaking suspicion that I missed the “fire” installment, but Audubon Greenwich is doing a multi-part series on green building. Planning to make some changes to your home? Check out these Tuesday evening events to do it responsibly. Price of admission is $10 for adults; free for kids. Email to RSVP.

I’m sure you’re recycling, but are you reducing and reusing? This presentation will help you check off those items too by teaching you about efficient garden irrigation, rain barrels, storage and practical rain harvesting.
