A Clean & Healthy Thurston County


Thurston Climate Action Team (TCAT) brings our community together to reduce climate disruption -- resulting in a healthy, just and prosperous future for all.

The Most Important Thing You Can Do for Climate Change This Year:

TCAT has been working with the Thurston Climate Mitigation Plan (TCMP) planning process for over a year now. We expect a completed plan to become available this Fall for the 4 jurisdictions: Tumwater, Lacey, Olympia and Thurston County to vote on.  This plan is based upon science based goals and would make our community a leader in the state on taking needed and bold action on climate.

Scientists are telling us we are running out of time to turn this around. For the plan to pass we need you!  We need you to show up virtually or in person at these city council votes, which you can commit to by signing our Critical Climate Action Pledge here

Review & Provide Feedback on the draft of the Thurston Climate Mitigation Plan!

  • Meeting #1: Monday, October 5th, 4:00-5:30 pm.

    • This event will include a live presentation and panel discussion with members of the Steering Committee and Climate Advisory Workgroup who were involved with developing the plan, as well as an opportunity for questions from the public.

  • Meeting #2: Wednesday, October 14th, 5:30-7:00 pm. 

Sign Our Petition

We also invite you to sign our petition to the Tumwater, Lacey, Olympia City Councils and the County Commissioners. We are letting them know we want that plan and we want it funded and implemented!
