About Us

Since 2015, The Fallbrook Climate Action Team (FCAT) is composed of local volunteers and activists. , the Fallbrook Climate Action Team is the only organization in Fallbrook speaking about Climate Change to policy makers and to our community, bringing in experts to inform us.

FCAT has put on dozens of free presentations to the public on topics related to climate change and the environment.   Representatives of our team attend public meetings and advocate for a County wide Climate Action Plan.

The elements of the proposed Climate Action Plan are:

  1. Increase the use of sustainable energy to 100%
  2. Plant more 35% more trees
  3. offer more convenient public transit
  4. work towards zero waste.

To work towards these goals;
1) FCAT has put on solar seminars to spread information on generating rooftop solar locally. Additionally, FCAT brings in experts to talk about Community Choice Energy.

2) To plant more trees, FCAT cooperates with the Fallbrook Land Conservancy Save Our Forest Committee to promote planting more trees on private property.

3) We’ve hosted presentations by the North County Transit District (NCTD). Some FCAT members are directly involved in meeting with S.D. County officials and Fallbrook Chamber of Commerce about how to implement improved mass transit around greater Fallbrook.

4) FCAT puts on expert presentations with County officials and local entrepreneurs on methods to reduce waste. FCAT volunteers also volunteer with the Fallbrook Beautification Alliance(FBA).

 

Formerly known as the Fallbrook Chapter of the regional North County Climate Change Alliance (NCCCA), the group became in June 2016 the Fallbrook Climate Action Team (FCAT) to adopt a simpler name with consistent local leadership to be more effective in communicating with the community of Fallbrook.
