Training To Be A Master Climate Protector

NASA/Public Domain

"Reduce your carbon footprint" may be an easy phrase to utter, but what does it actually mean?  Consume less energy released from fossil fuels, but what else? 

Detailed practical suggestions for how to reduce climate change impacts can be elusive.  And that's why Southern Oregon Climate Action Now (SOCAN) created its Master Climate Protector training. 

It follows the model of master gardener and master recycler programs, spending weeks educating trainees in climate-friendly practices.  Vanessa Ogier, who has taken the training, visits with Louise Shawkat of Ashland Action.  Next training--it's once a year--starts February 10th.
