The choices you make every day impact how clean Kirkland's lakes, streams, and air are. Each of our environmental choices adds up, so we need your help to keep Kirkland's water clean and air healthy!
The Anti-Idling Public Awareness Campaign is a community-led effort fully supported by the City Council. This campaign directly aligns with Action ES 1.2: Work with community members to create public/private partnerships to reduce emissions, in the City’s Sustainability Master Plan.

The purpose of this campaign is to increase public awareness of the effects of idling and encourage all who can limit their time spent idling to do so.
The community-led effort will involve outreach to local businesses, churches, neighborhood associations, schools, and at local public events. Campaign volunteers will provide an update to City Council in late 2022.
To get involved, contact the campaign volunteers Susan Vossler and Judy Beto.
We host events for the community to help restore our natural areas, recycle tricky items, learn how to use less pesticides in your yard, and more!
