He will also discuss 10 other species that look and act like sparrows that are also found in the NYC area.

Understanding National Policy to 
Address Climate Change*
E.C. Brolin
   Citizens Climate Lobby is a nonprofit, nonpartisan national organization focused on national policies to address climate change. They propose a “carbon fee and dividend” policy as a means of minimizing the burning of carbon-based fuels. This policy would make goods that use fossil fuels more expensive and return the funds collected to all households on an equal basis. Mr. Brolin is a volunteer for Citizens Climate Lobby and a retired executive who was responsible for nuclear energy research and development in government and industry. He is also a past chairman of the sustainable Southampton Green Advisory Committee.
   Since retiring Mr. Brolin has been active in our local community, including chairing the Sustainable Southampton Advisory Committee to the Town Board. The Committee helped pass several progressive pieces of legislation leading to improved sustainability for Southampton.

Field Trip: Saturday, October 14, 2017, meet at 8:30 am 
Fire Island Hawk Watch & Hike to the Lighthouse 
Leader: Eileen Schwinn
A repeat of a well-liked field trip, we will be meeting at the eastern end of Parking Lot 5, at Robert Moses State Park. We will stop at the Hawk Watch, where, with favorable winds, we 
will be joining other Long Island birders for a while, and hopefully see a number of east to west flying raptors. We will then walk the 3/4 mile boardwalk to the Fire Island Lighthouse, looking for migrating song birds along the way. Dress for the weather, and perhaps, bring a light snack and water. Binoculars a must. For more details, please contact Eileen Schwinn at beachmed@optonline.net or call 516-662-7751 the day of the trip.
