Weekly Newsletter

We have been sending out a newsletter every Thursday evening since October 2019; confirming our weekly climate strikes and keeping you informed about what’s happening in climate action in Muskoka and beyond. Additionally, we very occasionally send a special alert if we have news that just can’t wait.

Subscribe here to receive your Climate Action Muskoka News directly in your email inbox. (You can unsubscribe at any time. We adhere to Canadian Anti-Spam Legislation and never share your information.)
