Climate Smart tour Saturday in Whitefish

Print Article

The nonprofit Climate Smart Glacier Country organization will hold its next event Saturday, Oct. 13, with a tour of innovative, climate-smart homes in Whitefish.

The “Green Home Tour”, will start at the Center for Sustainability and Entrepreneurship at Whitefish High School at 10:45 a.m. to carpool. From there, participants will visit three homes that feature energy-efficient and sustainable designs. Learn about cutting-edge building materials, how to dramatically reduce energy costs, and opportunities to generate your own power. Lunch is provided.

Climate Smart aims to provide opportunities to learn how to prepare for climate-related disruptions and discuss local solutions on how to build a stronger, cleaner energy economy. All events are free and open to public.

The final event shifts the focus to the increasing risk of catastrophic wildfires in Flathead communities. A “Wildfire in the City” forum is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 14, at Whitefish City Hall and will focus on what homeowners and town leaders can do to establish fire-adapted communities. Wildfire has razed urban neighborhoods in major western cities over the past year, and the Flathead is not immune from this risk.
