Ready to make a difference on Environmental issues?

Start here with EFM Forum 2020.

Forum 2020 is a virtual series of conversations with environmental experts in their fields, including professional presentations focused on building equitable community resilience to the impacts of climate disruption.

EFM does more than educate you about the environment. Our goal is to develop an informed and engaged citizenry and train them to advocate for policies that enhance the natural and built environments (#educate4action).

For almost 50 years our Master Class has empowered ordinary people to take extraordinary actions and their projects have made huge contributions to Marin’s environment.
