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
Our area straddles three local watersheds that feed into the Mississippi. Read Ranae Hanson's Park Bugle article "How Does Your Watershed Flow?" and explore the resources linked here.
Consider some history. Bridal Veil Falls once flowed free (right: an 1860 photo); today it enters the river through a pipe at the Franklin Avenue Bridge. Learn more about the Historic Waters of the Mississippi Watershed Management Organization.
Compare it to today. Check out the historic and present-day waterbodies of the Capitol Region Watershed District (interactive map).
For more events, see the listings on our Facebook page.
