Climate Action Plan

Community Engagement

This public page is the storehouse for resources and information for the working group addressing community engagement issues as they relate to greenhouse gas emissions at Auburn. As the Climate Action Planning (CAP) process continues, resources will be added to this page.

All meetings of the working groups are open to the public. As meeting times and locations are established they will be posted on the calendar below.
