A positive, local response

to climate change

Neighbors addressing climate change

Transition Town — All St. Anthony Park

Smaller Footprint, Stronger Community

We’re neighbors linking up to live responsibly on the Earth.  We bring diverse skills— what we accomplish reflects who shows up. Our ideas are as many as the challenges we all face. But they may not yet include yours. 

Come, think, work, and celebrate with us!  


Our purpose is to raise our neighborhood's understanding of climate change and the limits of fossil fuels, and to foster a positive, community-wide transition to more sustainable ways of life... ASAP.  ASAP reminds us that climate change calls for our best efforts, right now. All Saint Anthony Park means South and North; renters and homeowners; newcomers and long-timers; businesses and nonprofits, students and seniors; faith groups, youth groups... all are needed.

To  understand your ecosystem,
get to know your watershed

In early spring we see the flow of water around us. Our area straddles three local watersheds that feed into the Mississippi. Read Ranae Hanson's article "How Does Your Watershed Flow?" in the March Park Bugle, then explore the resources linked here.
