Many communities are preparing for a changing climate.

We interviewed Candace Penn, the climate change ecologist for the tribe, about her research and planning efforts to preserve their culture. Following is a short interview with Mason Rolph, with Olympia Community Solar, to share an action we can take today to mitigate our impact on the climate.
