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.

Consider investing in community solar power
Yes, you can invest even without subscribing as an electricity customer. Two options, both with offerings closing this winter:
Cooperative Energy Futures, based in the Twin Cities
Red Lake Nation solar projects, based in northern MN
Follow links for details. Fully inform yourself before investing.
To understand your ecosystem, get to know your watershed
During these snowmelt seasons, we see the flow of water around us. Our corner of St. Paul straddles three local watersheds that feed into the Mississippi. Read Ranae Hanson's article "What Does Your Watershed Want?" in the March Park Bugle, then explore the resources linked here.
Discover the Historic Waters of the Mississippi Watershed Management Organization. At the current site of the Franklin Avenue Bridge, Bridal Veil Falls flowed free in this 1860 photo (learn more in Open Rivers).
Compare the Historic and Present-Day Waterbodies of the Capitol Region Watershed District (interactive map).

St. Paul City Council approves two climate-friendly measures
A city Climate Action and Resilience Plan was approved in a St. Paul City Council vote in December, as was a resolution holding Xcel Energy more accountable for a clean-energy transition and calling foul on its proposed new fracked-gas plant. Learn more in Tim Wulling's "Understanding St. Paul's Climate Action Plan" in the February Park Bugle.
The current volunteer editor of the monthly e-newsletter Transition Times ASAP is stepping down. If a new one steps up, it can continue; if not, we'll just rely on our Facebook page for event listings and FB group for discussions. Our outgoing editor can help the new person get started. New ideas welcome! No pay, just the rewards of empowering others to act for climate. Send an email to Communications@TransitionASAP.org.
