August 8, at 10:00 am, 3845 North Swan Street – "The Urgency of Now”
The science is clear; the time for action on climate is NOW. Please join local climate activists Mike and Carol Ann Fugagli as they provide the latest science on climate change, and show, unequivocally, that we have entered a decisive decade for humanity’s future on our rapidly warming planet.
As co-coordinators of the Upper Gila Watershed Alliance’s climate justice and youth empowerment program, Thinking ON a Mountain, Mike and Carol Ann will also talk about their local work with area youth, and provide a roadmap for climate action at the local, state, national, and international levels. Keenly aware of the psychological toll that climate change and biodiversity loss can have on youth and adults alike, Mike and Carol Ann will also talk about their personal struggles with ecological grief, and the tools they use to stay motivated, hopeful, and sane in the face of mass extinction.

Silver City MainStreet received funding from the New Mexico Department of Tourism’s (NMTD) Clean and Beautiful Grant Program for three separate beautification projects.
The projects include new landscaping at the Murray Ryan Visitor Center that will include a bee, butterfly and bird garden, a streetscape improvement on Bullard Street, and a mural that will face the Main Street Plaza. “We are so grateful for this funding, states Evangeline Zamora, board president of Silver City MainStreet. These projects will contribute to making downtown Silver City attractive and welcoming for both residents and tourists.”
The Town of Silver City was one of fifty-three communities in the state to receive funding to develop and enhance beautification and recycling initiatives. Due to increased interest in the program, NMTD was able to support an additional 16 communities in FY22 compared to FY21. The $789,800 grant program budget for FY22 also represents a $11,100 increase from FY21. NMTD also saw a significant increase of grantee retention in FY22. Nearly 90 percent of FY21 grant recipients applied for the program in FY22, compared to a previous retention rate of 71 percent for FY21.
