Moving Planet Day in Montana

Big thanks to the nearly 150 volunteers who made Missoula's Moving Planet Day a Big Success this past weekend! Sierra Club, Montana Audubon, University of Montana Climate Action Now, Missoula Free Cycles and a host of other partners organized this worldwide event last Saturday, September 24th, to encourage our community to move beyond fossil fuels, advocate for solutions to our climate crisis and support clean air policies.  

Citizens put their demand for climate action into motion by promoting sustainable transportation, producing local food, and restoring our public lands as part of five service projects around the community.

Thirty bicycles were assembled from scrap parts for use by the general public. Some of these bicycles will make their way to Ghana in a partially full freight box.

It was also National Public Lands Day, the largest, single-day volunteer event for public lands in the U.S.  Healthy, resilient public lands are critical in buffering the impacts of climate change. At a time when our leaders are delaying Environmental Protection Agency safeguards on carbon, ozone, and smog pollution, it is more important than ever to advocate for local solutions.
