In 2021, Urban Ecology offered to serve as a fiscal agent for a ground-breaking, hyper-local, journalism and community storytelling platform based in the San Francisco Bay Area. 

KneeDeepTimes is a new digital online magazine featuring stories from the frontlines of climate resilience in the San Francisco Bay Area and California. As the impacts of fires, smoke, floods and environmental contamination intensify, the magazine will examine reverberating responses from communities of all sizes. Launched in September 2021, this new platform for community storytelling will connect with real people and real places and share their views and voices. The magazine writes and shares about the core of our adaptation problem: how to involve people of all ages, cultures, incomes, and experiences with climate change adaptation in creating a more resilient and just future for the region.

California Climate Quilt
This citizen storytelling project of KneeDeep Times offers a more informal platform for communities, individuals and young people to share their views and experiences of climate change. KneeDeep is working to build the California Climate Quilt as an incremental story of the many kinds of  actions necessary to confront climate change.
