Hi You,

#2 The first official year of the Climate Action Collaborative.

#3 The Climate Action Collaborative got to work on addressing climate change in our community! Check out the Climate Action Collaborative's 2018 Annual Report below to learn more!

Carpooling is one of the best ways to cut your carbon footprint during the winter, when biking and walking aren't an option. By carpooling just twice a week on your commute, the average Eagle County resident can reduce 38.9 lbs of CO2 per day.
