Data Refuge is a community-driven, collaborative project to preserve public climate and environmental data. When we document the many ways diverse communities use data, we can also advocate for future data. We want to hear your data stories! 

This September, we launched a national climate storytelling campaign. It challenges the idea that you need a lab coat to collect climate data. Your field site can be your own backyard. Individual, lived experiences of climate change provide valuable companions to the quantifiable science as we continue to struggle to comprehend and take action on the climate crisis. We’re calling our campaign, #MyClimateStory, and we want to hear yours.
