Local chapters broaden, accelerate, and amplify the climate restoration movement by working for climate restoration at the grassroots level.

F4CR’s local chapters are the engine behind our advocacy and education efforts. Local chapters bring climate restoration participation opportunities to their communities by hosting events; attending relevant community events; and connecting with local government representatives. They spread the word about climate restoration through presentations, op-eds, letters to the editor, social media posts, book clubs, movie nights, and more. They encourage their communities to join the climate restoration movement by passing climate restoration resolutions, letters of support, and outreach to F4CR leadership.
