On 10/10/10, volunteers from Williamsburg Climate Action Network and Eco Discovery Park joined an international effort to design and take environmental action in our communities.  Over 7000 project took place around the globe.

Here in Williamsburg, dozens of volunteers devoted their Sunday to exchanging new energy efficient compact fluorescent lights for older incandescent bulbs in participating homes and businesses in order to reduce energy consumption in our area and save money.  Thanks to the generosity of local non-profit organizations, the City of Williamsburg and local businesses, these bulbs were free to residents of low-income housing and at a small fraction of their normal cost to local businesses.
