Dozens attend the Climate Action Festival in La Crosse Saturday

A group of activists is hoping to get more people in our area involved with the environment.

The Coulee Region Climate Alliance held a Climate Action Festival Saturday afternoon in La Crosse.

The group said they organized the event because many people in the area are worried about the environment and climate change but may not know how they can help.

“If they come here and see how many people are interested the same thing maybe that will inspire them to do something. Even if it is something small, if we all take small actions together we can make a difference,” said Kathy Allen, an event organizer.

This is the first year of the event and about 15 different organizations participated.
