SWNM Audubon will be among the forty groups that gather to provide the general public with information about the importance of protecting our planet. The theme of this year’s annual celebration is “Science Matters” to coincide with the national March for Science.
Earth Day is a perfect time to convey our message that Where birds thrive – People prosper. As an organization that promotes citizen science, Audubon has an important role to play in educating the public about our mission and how they can help. Members of Audubon have been instrumental in providing data that has been used by scientists to show how climate change is threatening birds.
Need to dispose of papers containing personal information? Thanks to the generous support of Freeport McMoRan, a shredding truck will be on site to shred documents. There will also be opportunities to recycle electronics.
Terry Timme, Treasurer and Membership Chair, is the recycling planner for the Town of Silver City. He encourages recycling on every occasion including at our monthly meetings. Please bring those things that do not go in your recycling bin. Terry will collect:
- printer and toner cartridges

These items can also be dropped off (and get more information) Monday - Thursday at the
Office of Sustainability at 1106 N. Pope Street, Silver City.
