With Earth Day just around the corner on April 22, King County is helping residents learn how they can join the effort to combat climate change.

"Earth Day offers us a chance to stop and think about the decisions we can make to protect and sustain our environment, economy and quality of life," said King County Executive Dow Constantine. "At King County we work to confront climate change not just on Earth Day, but every day: creating walkable and healthy communities, protecting and restoring our forests and farms, providing affordable and convenient commuting options like transit and trails, or supporting waste reduction and recycling."
