Organizations

This site and page will provide a resource for the many organizations in town who are involved in social justice, conservation, and environmental work. We believe connecting the dots between these organizations will enable us to better understand the overall capacity of Missoula to represent a resilient transition community.

 

The following list of organizations is not entirely comprehensive and is currently in no way connected to Transition Town Missoula, but have been identified as affiliate organizations for their shared orientation of interest and involvement in sustainability.
