Education for Action
Environmental Forum of Marin provides exceptional educational programs about environmental issues. Attend our landmark Master Class for a comprehensive training focused on Marin’s natural landscapes, ecosystems, and the challenges they face by promoting environmental stewardship, and preparing participants to advocate for preservation of our unique environment. The Lecture Series begins January 25, 2017. The schedule is on the Lecture Series page.
Attending Environmental Forum's Lecture Series is a powerful way to take action towards addressing our most pressing environmental challenges.
Here is a peek at our Lecture Series to come. Additional information and tickets will be available the week of January 9, 2017.
Lecture Series 2017 will take a close look at issues including Climate Action in the new Administration, Food Waste, Wildlife, Marin Housing, Climate Change in the Arctic, Health of the Bay, and Marin's Climate Action Plan.
Master Class 43, our intimate and comprehensive, hands-on educational experience about the environment began on August 27th. This intensive immersion, through classroom discussion with experts in their respective fields, will introduce the history and current issues of Marin’s environment with particular focus on the global context of climate change and effective environmental advocacy to preserve our local ecosystems.
Comprised of a series of field trips and classes focused on the natural world, human impact, and advocacy training, the Master Class is ideal for individuals seeking to deepen their knowledge of environmental issues, engage in environmental stewardship or enhance their environmental credentials. As a capstone, students complete a stewardship project, either individually or in teams, on a relevant topic of their choice.
This remarkable program is offered only once per year. Please consider joining Master Class 44 which will begin August 2017.
