Outdoor Lovers, Join Together Against Climate Change 

Protect Our Winters latest challenge will help you crush goals and take action

From reduced snowpack, disappearing glaciers and raging wildfires, you don't have to look far to see the ongoing effects of climate change in our region. For those who love to spend time in the great outdoors and hope to keep doing so, there are actions we can take to preserve the lifestyle we love. Protect Our Winters has a fun challenge for adventure seekers hoping to reverse the effects of climate change while getting outdoors. During the last week of March, POW is launching a challenge for Central Oregonians and worldwide, called #CrushIt4Climate. The challenge invites participants to spend 350 minutes or more outdoors during the week and then write to your local lawmakers encouraging them to show support for renewable energy on March 23, known as Take Action Tuesday.
