Prepare for impacts associated with a changing climate and more extreme weather events

We are helping our communities prepare for change by:

  • Planning growth to minimize exposure to fire, flood, drought
  • Updating development codes and educating property owers on risk reduction
  • Designing infrastructure that is resilient to extreme weather conditions
  • Strengthening local food systems and promoting sustainable agriculture that builds soil
  • Conserving water

You can get involved by participating in one of our working groups that is involved in adaptation strategies.

Our working groups also assisted with the development of the Whitefish Climate Action Plan, which provides recommendations for the city, school and broader community about ways to conserve energy, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, understand climate change projections, and prepare for likely impacts.
