What kinds of things do we do?
We address Climate Chaos by being active in the Corvallis Climate Justice Committee and supporting the work of the Corvallis Climate Action Alliance.
We educate members about Carbon Footprint is: the importance of lowering their household Footprint, working together to lower our church’s Footprint, and helped develop the Corvallis Carbon Offset Fund.
We Garden with native plants to enhance beauty, reduce water use, and encourage pollinators to thrive and grow food in our raised-bed area to help feed the hungry as well as encourage others to grow food at home.
We move toward Zero Waste by Reducing, Repairing, Repurposing, Reusing, and then Recycling in all aspects of our church life together and require that groups using church facilities do the same.
We encourage people to walk, ride bikes, and take buses. We work to keep our roadsides Litter-Free by picking it up at least once a year on Airport Road.
We promote Learning about our Environment – about Wetlands and Raptors, where our Water comes from, where our Water goes to during Church Field Trips.
We advocate on Local Environmental Issues.
