This means more flooding, more heat and respiratory deaths, increased disease and pests, and disruptions to our food and agricultural systems.

There is value in taking action and preparing at the local and state levels. Join us in learning about the importance of local government in addressing climate change, Cumberland County’s commitment to climate change mitigation and the Local Climate Action Program through the PA Dept. of Environmental Protection.
