Fall/Winter 2020 Happenings
Giving Tuesday is December 1st - we'd be honored to have your support! Bonus - all contributions from NEW donors will be matched up to $2021! Donate anytime HERE.
Thursday, December 10, 5-6pm: Join us for our Year 5 (Virtual) Celebration! We'd love nothing more than to gather with our friends & community to celebrate our 5(!) year anniversary, but we've got some fun plans for a virtual celebration nonetheless - including our famous Smarty Pants Awards. Please join us! More details HERE.
We've launched our Footprint Fund with our first project - check out missoulafootprintfund.org.
We were unable to host our usual Clean Energy Expo this year due to COVID, but this is still a great time of year to go solar! Wondering how to do it? We hosted a great Zoom Solar Happy Hour October 21 and the recording is posted HERE.
Thank you all for voting for climate champs. We did elect some! We are going to have to work hard to grow climate solutions in Montana. More on all this soon, and in the meantime, a bright light is that Mountain Line's Mill Levy passed and our bus system is going to get even better!
From Summer Smart to Winter Wise
Thanks to all involved with our Summer Smart initiative, helping our community address increasing wildfire smoke and hotter temperatures. When the smoke rolled in, we were better prepared. And, our clean air efforts reached other communities across the west. We had over 60,000(!) visitors to our companion site MontanaWildfireSmoke.org where we share critical information about how to stay healthy and help those most at risk.
These efforts and more are aligned with key strategies in Climate Ready Missoula: building resiliency in Missoula County.
Thank you, Alli!
Our wonderful EnergyCorps AmeriCorps member, Alli Kane, finished her 11-month service term at the end of August. It wasn't what any of us expected when she began her term last October, but we are so happy she came to Missoula and will be here for the foreseeable future!
