White House recognizes Blue Lake Rancheria Tribe

BLUE LAKE- The Blue Lake Rancheria is one of 15 communities recognized by the White House as being a Climate Action Champion.

The tribe has been honored for their progress in energy efficiency, renewable energy and reduction in green house gases.

The city was awarded the honor last week among the city of Boston, Seattle and San Francisco.

The tribe says they have worked closely with regional partners like Redwood Coast Energy Authority and Humboldt State University's Schatz Energy Research Center.
