OLYMPIA — Five students from the Methow Valley traveled to Olympia on Feb. 10 to urge their state representatives to take action to solve the global climate crisis.

The state Legislature is considering several bills which aim to help Washington become a leader on climate issues. Students lobbied their elected officials on five bills ranging from a program that would help build community solar programs to a grant program that would help fund sustainable agriculture and forestry projects in rural areas.
