The Climate Action Coalition of the Wood River Valley (CAC) started as a "grass-roots" group of concerned citizens, in Hailey, working to develop community awareness and action to focus on the imminent threat of climate change. The CAC continues, as a strictly grass-roots organization, to have neither a board nor a bank account. Through sponsoring events, building coalitions, and personal actions, the CAC has provided a voice and the opportunity to combat the fear, frustration, and feelings of helplessness many citizens are experiencing due to accelerating climate change. Our current Focus/Action Groups each began with one or more members identifying an area of personal concern and then finding other community or group members to work with them.  We’ve found that members with ideas have been the beginning of all of our efforts. Now Valley-wide, CAC represents citizens from the entire Wood River Valley​​.
