Gayla Shoemake is leading environmental workshops in Edmonds.

Not all climate activists are teenagers, of course.

Here's Gayla Shoemake, a 78-year-old Edmonds resident and chair of the Interfaith Climate Action, an interdenominational church group focused on bringing awareness to climate change issues.

Climate change is real, and Shoemake wants residents to know there are a few steps they can take individually to combat what many say is the world's biggest crisis. She is an active member of Edmonds United Methodist Church, and is a facilitator for the upcoming "Climate Crisis Study," a series of workshops beginning Sunday, Jan. 19, at the church.
