Climate change is having a big impact. Perhaps most evident in the time lapse photographs and videos captured by Extreme Ice Survey. Glaciers are receeding up mountainsides and dropping into the oceans at alarming rates.

It is time that we all have a big (positive) impact too.   The question is, how to start.  We are given good direction by Bill McKibben and his team who created Step It Up in 2007 and have gone on to organize international days of climate action each year.  This year’s 350 event is coming up on October 24th.

What is 350?  From 350’s website: “Scientists say that 350 parts per million CO2 in the atmosphere is the safe limit for humanity.  350.org is an international campaign dedicated to building a movement to unite the world around solutions to the climate crisis–the solutions that science and justice demand.”

Lava Lake is joining the action with a bicycle tour of the Pioneer the-science-of-350Mountains.  We will be embarking on a 50+ mile epic adventure through some remote Idaho backcountry, and seeing, up close, Lava Lake’s landscape scale conservation efforts.

The ride will join our valley and our ranch to another 2252 actions in 152 countries for 350 in a call for a safe climate future.  Visit www.350.org to discover more about this international effort and to find a climate action near you.
