Jess Hoover & Rachel Zero - Climate Action Plan
HC3 - Climate Action Plan

Join us for our weekly lunch meeting Tuesdays in Breckenridge, upstairs at Fatty's Pizzeria (106 South Ridge Street) 12pm MT.

Jess & Rachel will join us today from High Country Conservation Center (HC3) to give us an update on the Climate Action Plan for our own community.
With the impacts of climate change becoming increasingly obvious across Colorado, HC3 determined it was time to take decisive action here in Summit County. In early 2018, we hired a consultant and convened a group of stakeholders representing multiple interests to develop a Climate Action Plan for our community. Over six months, this group met to analyze Summit County’s greenhouse gas emissions inventory and, with the guidance of the consultant, develop strategies for reducing emissions in the energy, transportation, and waste sectors. We also considered the role forests plan in sequestering carbon.
