The New Castle Sustainability Advisory Board (SAB) has launched a series of monthly podcasts called New Castle Going Green. Listen to the latest episode about Suburban Wildlife Management HERE.
In this episode, SAB members Maxine Margo-Rubin, Gabriel Paley, and Aaron Silver interview Dr. Danielle Begley-Miller, the Director of Science and Stewardship at Teatown Lake Reservation. They talk about how to manage wildlife interactions in the suburbs and coexisting with our insect and animal neighbors. We touch on how to deal with the spotted lanternfly which is causing problems, as it can decimate certain tree species and plants. Dr. Begley-Miller gives us great information about the need to be aware of animals that are a part of our landscape, and what we can do to help them get through the fall and winter months.
These educational podcasts from the SAB aim to provide residents with information about green initiatives and sustainable options you can find around New Castle. Listen to previous podcasts about recycling, gas powered leaf blowers, electric vehicles, pollinators, New Castle’s Water Treatment Plant and more via the Town website: https://www.mynewcastle.org/590/Going-Green-Podcasts.
