Climate change is when our Earth gets hotter and drier. This is tough for people, animals, and plants because it can be hard to live in such conditions. It can also harm the environment and lead to big fires. Climate change can also bring lots of rain and strong winds, which sometimes lead to roads flooding or power lines falling down. Yolo County is coming up with a 2030 Climate Action and Adaptation Plan (CAAP) to fight climate change and make our county and the Earth a better place to live. We can help by planting more trees, using less energy and water, eating more veggies and less meat, and putting in solar panels to make our own energy from the sun.


Pick from one of the following prompts:

  1. What does a healthy planet Earth look like to you?
  2. What wild animals would you like to see stay in Yolo County?
  3. What can people do to help stop climate change?
  4. What does a healthy Yolo County look like to you?
  5. What does climate action in Yolo County look like?
