We will also will present the results of a mobile wood smoke monitoring project completed in Golden last winter and explain current efforts to reduce wood smoke exposure.
Many residents of Golden have raised concerns about the poor air quality in Golden. With the election coming up, we will be discussing what can be done in our community to improve the quality of air for the sake of everyone’s health and quality of life.
