Montanans addressing climate change:  Success stories

Montana is filled with great examples of people who are finding ways to address climate change - either by themselves, or with their neighbors and co-workers.

While staff from universities and federal and state agencies are working to learn more about how climate change is affecting the forests, fish, and wildlife species we care about, many citizens are adapting (and saving money in the process) by becoming more energy efficient.

In schools, kids have the opportunity to learn about the ways that bird migration patterns and plant flowering times are responding to changing temperatures in the state over time, while some communities are coming together to create solutions to old problems that are likely to become more challenging in a warmer climate, like water shortages.
