Cumberland County Climate Action Steps
March's CRSU Cumberland County Monthly Meeting focused on efforts to combat climate change. Here are a number of opportunities for action at the municipal, County, and state level. Join CRSU on Thursday March 25, at 7pm as we begin planning how to put what we learned last week into action! We will start with a look at tools and strategies citizens can use to work with local governments and school districts and then break into groups by municipality. Register here.
