Wonderful article highlighting the successes of four great organizations. I especially appreciate the history and how each group is adapting their work to help address the climate crisis.

Perhaps a companion article highlighting Acterra and Grassroots Ecology would expand upon this important perspective of local organizations with long histories and active work in the climate change arena.
