Color Fairport Green is a completely volunteer-run

environmental activism organization


We believe that collective action is the most powerful way to create positive change. We are committed to making connections and helping to provide the community with access to the knowledge and tools they need to make an impact and become responsible climate-minded citizens, good neighbors, and effective climate activists. 


However, the work we are able to do related to the effects of climate change depends on the experience, generosity, and commitment of those who volunteer their time and energy with us, since we are all volunteers.


Join us as we work together toward a sustainable future
for Fairport, Perinton, Monroe County, and beyond

We are connected to a network of several other local groups working toward shared goals
related to climate change issues in Rochester through the Climate Solutions Accelerator of the Genesee-Finger Lakes Region.
