Climate change is already affecting our communities. Impacts like hotter summers, wildfire smoke, and flooding endanger our homes and affect public health and local business. 

Thurston County and the cities of Lacey, Olympia, and Tumwater worked with staff rom the Thurston Regional Planning Council to craft a strategic framework for reducing climate polluting greenhouse gases while maintaining—and even improving—our quality of life.

Let's work together to save energy, act on climate change, and build a stronger community.
