It’s Global Day of Climate Action! The Allerton Park Climate Action Plan (apCAP) lays out a philosophy of “conserve (everything) and load (with renewables)”, with a goal of bringing Allerton to a net zero energy and emissions by 2035. While doing so, we strive to serve as a learning laboratory for the demonstration of sustainable technologies – to educate individuals and prepare them to face the challenges of becoming a sustainable society.

Pictured below are some of the current initiatives helping us operate in a more sustainable way, many made possible with the help of generous donors.

From the Allerton Park Bird Club:
One way we can help combat climate change is by making small changes in our daily routines such as turning off our lights. Turning off lights not only saves energy, but can also help save the lives of millions of migratory birds.
The Bay-Breasted Warbler (pictured to the right) eats an insect found at Allerton Park on its way from Canada to South America. Like most migratory birds, Bay-Breasted Warblers migrate at night, navigating their way using the stars. Turn out your lights to help these beautiful birds complete their migration!
